Zoe Gets Its Own Petrolhead Incident

Zoe Lack of Charging Stations Turbo/Automobile-Propre.com)

What is it with Can’t they enjoy a car it doesn’t burn fossil – even if it has the same performance and is as fun to drive (if not better)?

Most are aware of the big spat between and Top Gear after Top Gear the Roadster in 2008 around a then showed it being into a hangar, even it hadn’t actually run out of charge.

Perhaps less well is that they repeated the when they reviewed a LEAF in 2011.

So has journalism EVs progressed since then? not. On 8 February the New York published an article by John about a road trip he to take in a Tesla Model S, Washington to Boston.

The aim was to make use of new Superchargers installed on the route. He to make the distance and his article with a picture of the Model S on a truck.

However, Tesla – after its with Top Gear – had instrumented the car and able to show from the data that Broder had a number of things to cause the (such as driving in circles) – or at had missed a number of opportunities to the incident (such as not fully – depending on who you believe (see Elon Musk NY Times. NYT Editor Dings Both ).

One long term outcome may be the of a new expression, to ‘ broder ’, meaning:

“to or with wilful ignorance run the battery pack of an electric to the point that it no longer the vehicle”

The Zoe is the latest victim of this of journalism. This week the show Turbo (France’s of Top Gear) featured the Zoe. of describing the car, and how it drives, of the time was devoted to following a route to highlight its lack of charging stations (equivalent to the Superchargers in the Broder article).

So can positive be taken from incidents? One thing, I believe. The two incidents were presented this: ‘These cars are and will quickly run out of charge. are slow and hard to find.

Therefore these cars are no The most recent incidents presented like this: cars are electric and will run out of Fast chargers are hard to Therefore these cars are no for long distance journeys.’
