bluntYou lucky bastard.

Proving that it pays to be open with your views on the environment, singer James Blunt was awarded the keys to a brand new all-electric Mini Cooper from Hybrid Technologies under a Space Act partnership with NASA. The Mini is the first of its kind that runs on lithium-ion batteries. From the release,

“‘James Blunt is a great example of artists who are working to raise awareness about the importance of our environment,’ said Richard Griffiths, Director of Development for Hybrid Technologies. ‘With artists and executives willing to show fans everywhere the benefits of ecologically responsible behavior in their everyday lives, we believe over time we can encourage more and more consumers to drive Smart Cars and have a meaningful impact on the environment.'”

I became suspicious that James had picked up a new vehicle after reading he had left a party at the Stoli Hotel (sans ex-Petra Nemcov) in a quiet ride. Now, it appears he’ll also be showing off his new green wheels in an upcoming episode of the Discovery Channel’s Green Gadgets this month. You can also see video footage of the vehicle here and here.
