"Tesla claims we were lying when we said the brakes were "broken". They now say that all that had happened was that the fuse to the vacuum pump had failed, which meant that the brake just had to be pushed down much harder than usual. Well – to my mind, if the brakes are broken, then they're broken, and if this happened to your car, you'd take it to the garage to get it fixed. Odd it seems so trivial to Tesla now, because on the day of filming they insisted on repairing the fuse before we could carry on driving the car."
Last time I checked, if it doesn't work, it's broken or if something requires repair, its broken. Thats some funny sh*t there.

Hell, they were lucky enough to get any praise at all from Clarkson! Now they're latching onto the parts of the segment they didn't like. Petty, petty.

So their statement that the charge level never dropped below 20% is pretty moot.
Also, no one really watches Top Gear's $200,000+ car reviews for their legitimate opinion. You don't buy those cars based on Jeremy Clarkson drifting them around a track, you buy them based on legitimate reviews and your personal opinion on the car.
