Top Gear are notoriously anti-EV to the point of lying. They had written the negative script about a Tesla before they even received the car for testing. Elon Musk outed them on that one.
Journalism vs reporting - people confuse the two. Journalism is about entertaining stories, Reporting is about stating the facts - essentially fiction vs non-fiction.
Old Jeremy Clarkson was great for entrainment value, but a dubious source of facts. He did an about face on hybrids rather rapidly once he discovered that hybrid technology could make super cars better (faster). Like J.C. the rest of the world will follow, once E.V.'s and Hybrid's are better that ICE in their estimation. Better is subjective for each driver and can be cost to run, cost to purchase, speed, style, handling, safety, conformity/fashion, eco-credentials etc.
