snipshot_bx1a4l51gncs.jpg It’s been a bit of an uphill climb to find any news on what green vehicles celebrities took to the Oscars as part of Global Green’s Red Carpet/Green Cars campaign. That being said, here’s what we know….and we’ll be sure to update this as more comes in…

>>The Tesla Roadster: We’re still not sure who had the privilege of riding in this vehicle. One site claims that there were 30 of the two-seater Teslas available on Oscar night. We’re going to say that they probably got their numbers mixed up.

>>The Hydrogen-Powered BMW 7: According to Autobloggreen, Davis Guggenheim, director of the Oscar-winning documentary An Inconvenient Truth, arrived in this dual/gasoline vehicle. When both fuels are used together, the BMW 7 can get about 400 miles in between fill-ups. Not bad. On the hydrogen-only level, it has a range of 125 miles. Nice looking car, too.

>>The Plug-in Prius: We can confirm that Leonardo DiCaprio arrived in one of these converted Hybrids–which contain more powerful batteries and can get over 100mpg. Many believe that such exposure is a precursor to Toyota’s next incarnation of the Prius; expected to hit the Geneva Auto Show next month.

>>Standard Hybrid: I can’t confirm this for real, but did Al Gore just show up in a standard Prius? The only pics I saw have him and Tipper standing next to a black Prius. Anyone?

Of course, also included in the Global Green fleet were clean diesel, and ethanol-powered vehicles as well as the all-electric ZAP cars and other models. We’ll have to wait until more information leaks in on who exactly took a ZAP to the carpet. Should be interesting. Stay tuned.
