  • Every time I see one of those electric BMW’s, Jeremy Clarkson pops into my head and says “you know, your tax dollars are paying for that.” I get really mad after that.

  • Definitely agree on the colour choices, but I guess that's why wraps are so popular now, buy the car in a colour that's good for resale, and wrap it in the colour you wish they came in.

  • what i like in this video is that you admit you are in a " good position" and you can afford a car like this and you like the " idea" about how cars world is changing, not hiding yourself behind " silly" green masks. this is something rarely appears on " tv stars". your pride. ps : as i am a motorbike rider am i right if i say you have anice rc45? great " dirt" petrol bike. ciao from italy.

  • although id find it boring to own myself i approve of electric cars and self driving and all that, for the average person whos too dumb to indicate or get an oil change its perfect, the more boring and idiot proof the better

  • That's one in the eye for Top Gear. Power stations (even coal ones) needn't pollute at all. Electric cars are cleaner, faster, and yet even safer. A CHEAP 4-door saloon quite a bit smaller than a Tesls model 3 (but having most of its performance and qualities) will be the hardest vehicle to achieve, That will succeed all over Europe, the Russias, India, China and Japan. Tesla will get to it long before anyone else. (It is going to have to look like a Smart car on steroids).

  • May!!! you have a Guzzi AND an RVF!!!!!? 😍😍😍😍🙊 I almost spat my coffee out when i saw that.. and now i have a rather uncomfortable and embarrassing development in the gentlemans sausage area at the cafe... 😬

  • May, as a motorcycle nutter (and restorer), as well as an avid combustion engine car enthusiast, i wholeheartedly agree with you about partaking in the experiment. Current and developing tech and creation tremds definitely does indicate that the future of automotive industry will become largely electric. As sad as it is to comsider not hearing the sound of a wonderfully tuned fossil-powered engine, as a species we do need to embrace developments that add value to our lives and environment. But the trade off for embracing electric is - Instant Torque!!!! 🤙

  • It's a 6 year old Model. I guess he got a discount or may Musk gave him one as Sales are collapsing for the high end models as people get the cheaper Model 3. Hopefully Jame hasn't gone one with one of those dodgy batteries which catches fire. Combine that with doors that can't be opened in the event of an accident and you have a potential deathtrap.

  • Why would you buy this over the Alfa QV? I'm sorry, but that is a better car in every way. The only way the Tesla beats the QV is in a straight line - that's it.

  • Hope just one of those 18650 lithium cells doesn't go kamikaze and turn the entire vehicle into an internal combustion engine. A spontaneous one.

  • "Frunk" in America, but I vote we call it it a "Fōōt" or "Frōōt" on the other side of the pond, Yes I know they don't get to vote over there, but let's be honest, voting hasn't really worked out in the States for me lately, so I'll just start voting everywhere and hope for the best. EDIT: Lucy (off camera): "What color is it?" May: "It's blue, da ba dee da ba daa , Da ba dee da ba daa, da ba dee da ba daa, da ba dee da ba daa, Da ba dee da ba daa, da ba dee da ba daa, da ba dee da ba daa"
