James May, so nice to see you embrace a Tesla car! To my awareness, you have represented Top Gear which some of the time have appeared to be extremely commercial and biased and certainly not fair to EVs and in particular Tesla. In fact it has been so obvious that it has not added any good to the reputation of Top Gear in either the UK or the US.

Lol, May doesn't realise how cringe his shtick is and that he is only tolerable on screen when he's a foil for Clarkson so thinks he can hold a video on his own.

It’s not a bad choice it is a good car. I’m thinking of getting one and spoke to a friend who has one and he says it’s the best car he’s ever had

Is that an RC45 in the background, Mr May?
I tip my hat to you, sir, a pretty awesome garage!

You’re the king, May. What you said is true- let the lemmings buy electric and SUVs so enthusiasts can keep our petrol sports cars!

Why not make and sell a removable range extending battery pack that can be charged separately from the main car system circuit that will fit in either front or rear trunk?

Yey someone bought a Tesla. Now there’s a new idea for a YouTube video that hasn’t been done to death. 🤣🙄

Easily stolen as well. Nice to know that they are digging up Sweden for cobalt for the batteries in you’re electric vehicle. High up in Sweden where heavy metals can be released into the water table for towns/ villages lower down in Sweden. Very environmentally friendly

Poor James he don’t know what he’s doing with his life:
May: Yo brothers, yo sisters I’m from 1953 why am I speaking like a 21 century child!
Me: Poor chap what is he doing.
I still think you are more sensible than Jezza and hammond ( I said the ‘h’ in hammond in lower case because hammond is small!)

Tired old garbage from an outdated old bore. Just retire you old git. Nobody wants to hear your outdated review on this now old model. You got a car that only the 1%ers can afford, wowwee. Try going without a car altogether and get around on a mobility scooter you bloody dinosaur.

I'm sorry , electric cars are technically brilliant in some ways but a nightmare for the planet - worse than most petrol cars. Lithium - one of the nastiest chemicals you can imagine - the production of the battery alone for a Tesla has a bigger impact on the planet than a small petrol car does for it's whole life. What about disposing of millions of these environmental time bombs? What about the almost zero resale value of electric cars? What about almost no charging stations in the UK? What about how are we going to build the 6 (fossil fuel) power stations needed for all the mugs to charge their electric cars up? (that's only with a 30% take-up) If you live in flat or street park you are fucked ! What about the real risk of lithium battery thermal runaway fires - remember the electric car Hammond crashed burnt for 6 days? It's all lithium smoke and mirrors, fuel cells were the way to go , so much money now invested in lithium battery technology you are being conned into wasting your money on a money pit ( Nissan Leaf cost new £32k - after 8 years book value is £0 - yes zero as battery range is down to bout 25-35 miles by then and a new battery is almost 60% of the price of a new car! Lease you cry - go ahead and pay through the nose to lease a electric car and/or battery - it will cost you far more than running any petrol car over the same period. Don't get me wrong, electric power is amazing and will be the future for sure BUT not with lithium batteries it wont!!!

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.

Had guessed it instantly once I saw the picture with the cover a couple of days ago. Great choice!

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, 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!!!! 🤙
