Will.i.am, the founding member of the Black Eyed Peas sure knows how to make a great performance. With his humble beginnings, he has clearly triumphed and proved to the world he is a great performer. Not only does he electrifies the stage with his head bopping hits, he also electrifying the road, literally. Yup! you read it right. B.E.P.’s founder just purchased the Tesla Roadster, a fully electric sports car. Tesla claims prototypes have been able to accelerate from 0-60 mph (100 km/h) in about 4 seconds, and reach a top speed of over 130 mph (210 km/h). The car will be able to travel more than 200 miles (322 km) on a single charge of its lithium ion batteries. The car was unveiled last July 2006 in Santa Monica, California.
With numerous car manufacturers coming up with environment-friendly cars, they are now showing the world how they want to take into part on taking care of the environment. Same goes with actors and music celebrities, like Will.i.am. I think that they are setting a good example in purchasing and using these environment-friendly vehicles. They actually encourages people to look after the environment. When they buy these kinds of cars, they are perceived as a concerned beings of this earth. Perhaps this is their way of showing that they do care and that they do want to do something about it.
