Top Gear being sued by Tesla

Top Gear has announced that the American electric car maker, Tesla, is taking legal action against them

In 2008 the Top Gear team did a review of the Tesla electric sports car, by pitting it up against a petrol Lotus. Tesla is claiming that the race was rigged, by making it look like the Tesla ran out of power. The claimed ‘miles per charge’, if driven carefully, is 313 miles. Top Gear calculated that it would only last 55 miles around their race track. The BBC will be “vigorously defending” the claims.
