Joining musician James Blunt in cruising the streets with an all-electric Mini Cooper is Growing Pains star Alan Thicke. The Emmy and Golden Globe nominee is becoming the new spokesperson for Hybrid Technologies — a firm that develops and markets lithium-powered products worldwide. They’re also responsible for commercializing the process that guts the mini of its conventional engine in favor of the electric kind (which at last read, will set you back a cool $60K). Said Thicke of the relationship,
“As a Baby Boomer Consumer, I’ve been part of the problem so now it’s time to be part of the solution. Hybrid Technologies allows me to cut back on emissions and eliminate fuel costs without sacrificing luxury or performance. I’ve set many examples for my kids – pro and con – but this is definitely one of the better ones. I feel like a smart guy in a smart car!”
Ah, the power of celebrity endorsement. Enjoy the free wheels and zero trips to the pump, Alan!
