London: Hollywood star Leonardo DiCaprio, who is reportedly dating actress Blake Lively, has gifted her eco-friendly car.

The 36-year-old actor was said to be horrified that his 'Gossip Girl' star girlfriend had a Range Rover and so he gifted her USD 40,000 black Prius, reported a website.

The hybrid petrol-electric car gets 50 miles to the gallon compared to 20 for a Range Rover.

DiCaprio is known for pushing green causes. He arrived at the Oscar's two years ago in a Prius to highlight global warming issues. And he recently bought a USD 100,000 hybrid supercar - the Fisker Karma.
