Playing Malin Akerman's Electric Car Envy

Looking like something straight out of a science fiction movie, Tesla Motors debuted their Model X prototype to the delight of Hollywood's greenest celebrities.

The electric-powered SUV made its mark last Thursday in Los Angeles and Malin Akerman was one of the first to test drive the wheels.

"I think this is the future [of green technology]," said the Rock of Ages star. "We just went for a test drive and it's amazing… It goes from zero to 60 in no time."

Jason Ritter also the star-studded launch, telling ET "I like things that make me feel like we're living in the future...Once we have run out of all the gas and all the oil, we'll have to be all driving these kinds of things and I wanna see what it's going to be like."

Garcelle Beauvais and Tim Daly also attended the event for which the band Foster the People performed.
