Richard Hammond goes on a road trip in a Tesla Model X
After buying a Morgan Plus 6 not too long ago, Hammond has decided to have a go at the electric side of motoring. He has borrowed a Model X from Tesla to head to the Lake District with his wife, Mindy, and it doesn't quite go to plan. Let the range anxiety commence!

    Keep the camera on your wife. Things last longer are better? You know about that? So funny, she just told us Richard dosent last long in bed... When Richard got out of the car to recharge it, did anybody notice how huge the car is??? That is a very tall car.

    How strange that the speedo randomly turned blurry after you recharged on your journey to the lakes. Should may be get Tesla to take a look at that! 😉

    i liked how they blanked out the speedo when Hammond was doing more than 70mph

  • TheBajamin

    This is absolutely awesome. Nice to see Hammond with his family at work. I'm assuming the daughters didn't want to be put through the horrendous journey. I know I have a daughter too. 😂 I don't know if this has convinced me to get an electric car. Still not sold on the low build quality I can here in the materials . But I appreciate the technology

  • MegaJackjack10

    The road noise in that thing sounds obnoxious

  • arod2882

    Slipstreaming a petrol tanker in an electric car is definitely funny! 🤣

    1) Infrastructure is constantly growing. 2) you can charge at NON-Tesla chargers... assuming you have the right adapter/cable sitting in the back (or front) of the car. These days, there is only one you really need for accessing other EV chargers... unless you find an antique one somewhere. 3) You've been aware of, and covering, this type of thing for a number of years... how can you honestly be so ignorant of what's out there at this point in the development of EV's and charging infrastructure? Didn't you crash and burn an EV not that long ago?

    Love at how 8.35 it blurs the speed due to him going above the speed limit

    Blurred out speedo at times. Lol They look like to much of a pain in the arse. Rather do that journey in Dodge challenger hellcat red eye! More character!

  • padam19

    Love how they used to mock motorway services to bits, and in the future all their road trips will involve several of them.

  • QuantumS1ngularity

    Guys, fellas, mates, boys, dudes, brothers... our automotive guru's are now officially old. Looking at the way Richard is excited over a Tesla charging up is like years ago when my grandfather used to get really excited i was able to videocall my cousin via skype (b4 MS bought it) on the phone or when my grandmother experience heated and massaging seats for the first time. Also kudos to Mindy - being a passenger while Hammond is driving an electric vehicle and says "Right watch..." @ <a href="#" class="seekto" data-time="491">8:11</a>; pretty brave.

    I drive a model X as part of my job and the range anxiety can be terrible. We have a long way to go before these become the norm.

    Hopefully they have improved the sound deadening local airport car company had early X and the road noise from the front tyres into the cabin was headache-inducing and after two hours could not wait to get out of the bloody thing.

    So fake shit this. Hammond acting not understanding charging a Tesla. He knows how to fly a chopper come on.
