There’s no doubt about it; caring for the environment is cool. And as a result, driving a hybrid car is officially trendy. Never ones to be left behind, celebrities and famous faces all over the world are taking over roads with their eco-friendly vehicles, helping to reduce their carbon footprint one mile at a time. With that in mind, here are some of our favourite hybrids, as well as the famous faces who drive them:
Gwyneth Paltrow – Toyota Prius
The Toyota Prius changed the way people thought about Hybrids. Stylish, reliable and good for the environment, the Prius is the undisputed king of the hybrid world. Known for her commitment to health and well-being, it’s no wonder that Gwyneth made the switch to an eco-friendly car to drive her children around in.
Courtney Cox – BMW Active Hybrid 7
The television queen may be well-known for playing New York-based, super-tidy Monica in Friends, but it looks like Courtney Cox needs something or get her from A to B in real-life. Opting for a family-friendly BMW Active Hybrid 7, the corporate looking car doesn’t offer anything new style-wise, but packs a powerful green punch on the road.
Kylie Minogue – Lexus CT 200H Hybrid
The Australian popstar may have advertised the car for them, but it looks like she fell in love with the Lexus CT 200H Hybrid all on her own. Encompassing Lexus’ unique style and class, the 200H Hybrid definitely turns heads, while keeping emissions down.
Tobey Maguire – Mercedes Benz S400
Mercedes really came into its own when it released the S400. And it looks like it grabbed the attention of the once-Spiderman. Looking the same as any other Mercedes, you wouldn’t know at first glance that it was a hybrid.
Reese Witherspoon – Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid
Another high-end vehicle, the Porsche Cayenne S Hybrid is a stylish, eco-friendly crossover that offers superb performance while not compromising on style. Infinitely more eco-friendly than its older brother, the Porsche Cayenne, the luxurious vehicle is perfect for cruising in comfort.
Hillary Clinton – Mercury Mariner Hybrid
The Presidential candidate has to set an example. And what better than the all-American Mercury Mariner Hybrid? A practical SUV that provides all the comfort and pleasurable driver experience that people are used to, the Mariner suits the chic yet approachable potential future President.
Barack Obama – Ford Escape Hybrid
Another person who has to practice what he preaches is current President Barack Obama. Driving around in a Ford Escape Hybrid, the leader of the Western World puts other leaders to shame. The big, family-friendly car is ideal for the whole family, and provides robust protection on busy Washington roads.
