DiCaprio Trades Prius to Tesla Roadster
The star of "Revolutionary Road" recently traded in his Toyota Prius hybrid for a $147,000 Tesla Roadster, the first high-performance electric car. In an interview with the Daily Mail, Leonardo DiCaprio also talked up his passion for eco-causes, and his first sports car.
"It's scarily fast and it all happens with the flip of a switch, unlike a piston-driven engine that needs to build up momentum."
About his passion for environmental issues, he noted, "I don't think it's fair to tell people to install solar panels, buy (low-watt) light bulbs or drive a hybrid—that's not a reality for most people..." But, he added, "We are the most powerful country in the world and we haven't made a tiptoe towards renewable technologies. We should be the ones paving the way, the ones other countries look up to. It makes me extremely sad."
