Gawker is whispering that Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has been quietly attempting to return his all-electric Tesla Roadster for several months now. Apparently, the company has been keeping the request all hush-hush for fears that it might throw dark clouds of publicity over its troubled financial situation. Obviously, this has got to be embarrassing for Schwarzenegger as well — the guy has included Tesla’s vision and product as examples of needed green tech in several of his speeches. So why is he so unhappy? From the article,

“Built on a Lotus Elise body, the car is not easy to get in and out of, especially for someone with the former bodybuilder’s robust frame. “He’s more of a Hummer guy,” one tipster tells us.”

While the Hummer is certainly a Schwarzenegger favorite, it’s not his current day-to-day vehicle of choice. That would be the 2009 Dodge Challenger Hemi — of which the Governor was spotted driving once again this past Monday. In fact, we can’t ever remember seeing Arnold in his Tesla in public; a shame considering the Challenger gets a depressing 13MPG and does nothing to add to his green cred.

Alas, if Tesla doesn’t take the car back, there’s always Craig’s List.
