tesla roadster at Tesla Suing Top Gear Over Roadster Review

Three years after Top Gear reviewed Tesla Roadster, the makers of the car have no decided they didn’t like what they said in the show and therefore they are suing Top Gear and BBC!

They had expressed their anger with Clarkson’s review of the car at the time, but three years on they are apparently started to see the effect of Jezza’s strong comments. Tesla is angry that the show is repeatedly aired on different channels, and it’s on the Internet, and on DVD and on the lips of the nation to be honest.

But what are they complaining about? Well, in that film the roadster apparently ran out of charge way way sooner than it was supposed to run out. Then they show the car being pushed by the crew inside a hanger where it had to be recharged for hours. That scene was too much for Tesla to watch and it’s still hurting them. Jezza also claimed that the back up Roadster suffered from complete brake failure and it also overheated. Again, Tesla says rubbish, you just made that up to make the show more interesting.

“The programme’s lies are repeatedly and consistently re-broadcast to hundreds of millions of viewers on BBC channels and web sites, on other TV channels via syndication; the show is available on the Internet, and is for sale on DVD around the world,” Ricardo Reyes, Tesla vice president of communications was quoted as saying by TGDaily.
“Today, we continue to field questions and explain the serious misconceptions created by the show.

Tesla demands BBC to correct the review or stop broadcasting it. BBC has not yet responded officially, but sources close to them suggest that they are prepared to defend vigorously. Tesla is actually doing it. This case will only make Top Gear more popular. The Silicon Valley boys better make their cars right!
