Mercedez-Benz Helps Luxury Cars Go Green

Luxury car makers are jumping hard on the eco friendly, electric, and hybrid car bandwagon because green seems to be the new black in the auto industry. Furthermore, nothing is a bigger staple of car marketing than getting celebrities to drive your vehicle, and this holds true in the eco sector as well.

Therefore, it's no shocker that celebrities left and right have been seen rolling up to red carpets in the Mercedes Benz S400 Hybrid, BlueTEC and Zero Emissions B-Class Hydrogen Fuel Cell vehicles.

Exactly who’s on the list of green celebs spotted in this car most of us can’t afford yet? How about Natalie Portman, Ali Larter, Hayden Panettiere, Colin Firth, Amy Adams, Ben Affleck, Robert Duvall, Eva Mendes, Mark Wahlberg, Carey Mulligan, James Franco, Helen Mirren, Aaron Eckhart, Oliver Stone, Jesse Eisenberg, Jake Gyllenhaal, Kirsten Dunst, Julie Stiles and Matthew Rhys.

In addition to that illustrious list, the Mercedes Benz S400 in particular is a favorite eco luxury car of Tobey Maguire, Demi Moore and Gerard Butler.

This doen't mean that the only way to help the environment is by driving an eco friendly luxury car! Sure, a Benz is nice, but there are plenty of environmentally-conscious cars out there that won’t put you into massive debt. In fact, many of the greenest cars out there are readily affordable. For example, the Toyota Prius, Nissan Leaf, and the Chevy Volt.
