Was ?Top Gear? Test of the Tesla a lie?
?Top Gear,? the British television show about cars, has a flair for the dramatic, but a recent episode featuring a review of the Tesla Roadster electric car has called the show?s methods into question. In the segment, Jeremy Clarkson, one of the show?s three hosts, flogs a Tesla around a test track ? to whoops and hollers ? until the car slows down and unexpectedly stops. Mr. Clarkson looks at the camera, seemingly befuddled. He and three others are forced to push the car into a warehouse for a battery recharge. At least that?s what the video seems to show? But did the car actually run out of juice?
