An historical perspective, the whole lot is good but the EV part starts about 2:45



:wink:
Clarkson has never been a good reference, not even for ICE cars, let alone EVs

He´s a fun person, a good presenter, and a great showman, but far from objective. I enjoy Top Gear and also his adventure as a farman, but you can´t take him seriously by any means

I am sure he often deliberately says things he doesn't believe - being controversial adds comic effect.

Too bad such things may sway public opinion though, not everyone catches the nuance.

To be fair, ol' Jezza is a classic sardonic Brit, just as Boris is, & neither really expect anything they say
to be taken literally, (or even factually, IMO) as befits their 'Basil Fawlty' public approach persona...
"Well, we knocked the bastard off!"

Ed Hilary on being 1st to top Mt Everest,
(& 1st to do a surface traverse across Antarctica,
in good Kiwi style - riding a Massey Ferguson farm
tractor - with a few extemporised mod's to hack the task).
