There was a time when Jeremy Clarkson, like so many other old-school car
enthusiasts, absolutely despised electric cars.

However, in the near decade since the former Top Gear host’s infamous review
of the Tesla Roadster, electric cars have come a long way. So, have
Clarkson’s views changed as well?

Mashable recently sat down with the controversial journalist prior to the
launch of The Grand Tour’s second season and much to our surprise, Clarkson
no longer appears to be vehemently opposed to electric cars, perhaps sensing
the inevitable EV revolution.

Quizzed about his thoughts of the 2020 Tesla Roadster, Clarkson said, “I
think the world could become kinder, better place, perhaps because of
electrical cars. I certainly have no problem with electricity as a means of
propulsion.” Yes, those exact words left Clarkson’s mouth.

It remains to be seen what has swayed Clarkson’s views, but we wouldn’t be
surprised to hear that the Rimac Concept_One, set to star in the new season
of The Grand Tour, may have convinced him.

I don't know why people view Top Gear's review of the Roadster so
negatively.  OK sure, they rolled it back into their garage as if it had
run out of electricity when in fact it had not...but the point they were
making was one of how long it takes to charge the car and how inconvenient
that was at the time (there were no Tesla Superchargers at the time, and
almost no public charging infrastructure.)  And it's absolutely true that
if you run the car around the track, it will last far less than its claimed
range of 200 miles.  I believe their show claimed 55 miles.

That show also included this great quote: "What we have here then is an
astonishing technical achievement: the first electric car that you might
actually want to buy."  (right before things go south)

Because it was a complete fabrication that was scripted before the even got the car.

I thought the show was honest and actually tested vehicles now I know it’s just fiction
