The Grand Tour Reviews The Tesla Model X – Video
Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May tell us the history of Top Gear and Tesla, and Jeremy provides a review.
Ex-Top Gear friends are at it again in their new Amazon Video original series — which most of you are probably well aware of — The Grand Tour.
The series debuted in November of 2016, and its two seasons have taken the trio around the world to the likes of Johannesburg, Rotterdam, Nashville, and Dubai, just to name a few. Videos are filmed inside of their mobile studio, which is actually a giant tent.
This particular installment, Season 2 Episode 10, takes Jeremy to Swindon, England to test drive the Tesla Model X. It’s somewhat ironic since he was previously sued by Tesla and has mostly avoided the automaker ever since. Tesla lost, but it was still a huge hassle for Clarkson.
However, we heard from Clarkson recently that he would, in fact, feature a Tesla in an upcoming episode. Now, it has finally arrived, and, of course, makes some attempt to poke fun at the prior situation.
Let’s just say there are Amazon lawyers involved, and we don’t want to spoil it for you. Enjoy!
In related news, Top Gear’s Richard Hammond recently reviewed the Model S, and called its acceleration “Truly Mind Blowing.” Although he was quite impressed with the electric sedan, there were a few areas he’d like to see improved.
