David Duchovny's Electric RAV4 Has Him Feeling Tethered

It’s no secret that many celebrities out there drive first-generation electric cars (Ed Begley Jr., George Clooney, Will Ferrel), but rarely do they open up about their short-comings. Not David Duchovovy. The star of Showtime’s Californication has a love/hate relationship with his all-electric Toyota RAV4, calling the vehicle green, but impractical.

“I’ve had my RAV4 EV [Toyota’s all electric 4×4] for the last four years,” Duchovny told the UK Times Online. “It was supposed to be a prototype for the next generation of cars. But the problem is that the car needs charging every night and the most you can do in a day is 80 miles. It is like being tethered.”

While 80 miles/day is probably enough for you and me, Duchovny is obviously traveling a bit more. Since moving back to New York City from Los Angeles, the 48-year-old actor has purchased a Vespa scooter to cope with the congestion and limits of his electric RAV4.

Fast forward a couple of years and David’s choices in green wheels should widen considerably — especially with regards to the range of electric vehicles. In an interview last year, the actor admitted that going green has its benefits, but cost is still a barrier. “We try to set an example. Unfortunately, you have to have the means to be green. That’s what has to change in this world. It should be cheaper to be green.”
