Video: Top Gear’s Clarkson, May run out of charge in Nissan LEAF

NIssan LEAF - Jeremy Clarkson Top Gear

While BBC’s Top Gear and Tesla Motors are still working out the kinks of Tesla’s lawsuit against Top Gear (which alleged that Top Gear’s review of Tesla’s electric Roadster sports car was staged), the crew was caught in Lincolnshire with the Nissan LEAF and Peugeot iOn electric-cars.

Apparently, Jeremy Clarkson and James May were filming a segment for the new series consisting of the Nissan LEAF and the Peugeot iOn and happened to run out of battery near Lincolnshire during the test. The two first went to Lincolnshire County Council offices to enquire about the closest electric car recharge point, which they learned the town had none of. In an attempt to continue their journey, the two Top Gear hosts had to push the LEAF all the way to the Brayford campus of the University of Lincoln where they were able to get some juice.

In the episode, the May and Clarkson try to cross the county in the new Nissan LEAF and Peugeot iOn – should be an interesting one.
