In season 4, the fellows at Top Gear USA caught on to the fact that there are a lot of plug-in cars on the road today, and that there is a lot of people want to know more about them.  Now that full video is available to watch online.

Will The 55 MPH Land Speed Record For Reverse Be Broken?

Will The 55 MPH Land Speed Record For Reverse Be Broken?

In this episode, the US version of the popular UK show took a look at what the EV scene has to offer, with a special focus on the:

  • Fiat 500e
  • Nissan LEAF
  • Ford Focus Electric
  • and a trio of customized EVs doing the 1/4 mile
  • top speed of some EVs in reverse
  • etc., etc., etc.
The three fellows drive the EVs, with the winner of an impromptu series of challenges getting to drive the Tesla Model S.

Having first aired in 2014, we should note that some of the pricing information is a touch dated, and some of the specs/details are a little off (did you know Tesla had a pick-up truck coming soon?), and much of the commentary is Top Gear-esque - but it is still an interesting watch nonetheless.
