We all know last year the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences (aka ‘The Oscars’) provided complimentary chauffeur-driven Toyota Priuses for attendees. They were quite the hot commodity. Eco-conscious riders included; Cameron Diaz, Susan Sarandon, Tim Robbins, Harrison Ford and Calista Flockhart. Maggie Gyllenhaal, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Al Gore took hybrids to a post-Oscar bashes.

Now Bentley, the uber-bling vehicle to the stars, owned by Volkswagen, announces plans to develop eco-friendly limos. Current models are supreme gas guzzlers. On average they net approximately 14 miles per gallon with extremely high CO2 emissions. Perhaps this will be the perfect environmentally friendly vehicle for celebs such as Beyonce, Jay-Z and Jaime Foxx in the near future. We definitely know one individual who will be more than happy to hear this news.

    I just heard about this on GlobalGrind.com and I think this is the best news I’ve heard in a while. I hope they don’t change the classic look of the Bentley too much, I don’t like the way environmentally friendly cars look like the Prius. But a Bentley..I’d pay the money for that!
