Top Gear is known for its "special' love for Electric Cars and Tesla even filed a lawsuit against the program.
'We have wrote before that BBC with its coverage of Electric Cars can be called BP TV - they must have forgotten that the company is funded by UK taxpayers, who are chocking now with gas prices at almost 10 dollars per gallon.
Hopefully, now the Tesla record will be set straight and we expect further publicity supporting Electric Cars."
Problem is serious enough now in UK to embrace Electric Cars with all available resources. Gas prices across the pond are already above $8 dollars per gallon! We think that Tesla Model S will change a lot of minds in thinking about Electric Cars.
