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!

Did anyone notice the Speedo pixled out? Hammond old boy you slipped up because at some points I bwas able to read 75mph and maybe a bit higher. Nice. Electric car anxiety.

Love this video, would definitely watch more of Hammond and his wife doing more mundane things. As a Tesla owner of a similar Model X, I have gone through all those same emotions, especially pulling into a supercharger with 0 mi remaining. Happy to see that Hammond is really one of us as well!

I'm sorry Mr Hammond, your attempt to blur out the speed was an epic failure. 70 mph, well, sort of! In the words of Clarkson, 'Hammond, you idiot!'...🤣

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! 😉

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

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

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.
