Nissan: Top Gear Lincoln breakdown ‘intentional’

A statement from Nissan explained Top Gear’s electric car breakdown in Lincoln on Thursday was not accidental after all.

A Nissan GB spokesman told All Cars Electric “pictures rarely tell the whole story, as is the case here,” where crowds gathered to watch Jeremy Clarkson in a Nissan Leaf and James May in a Peugeot iOn film for the upcoming series of the BBC show.

“Top Gear has confirmed to us that the crew intentionally drained the battery to inject suspense into the mission of finding a public charge spot,” Nissan spokesman Ton Barnard said.

“Lincoln is an area renowned for not having any public charging infrastructure. Top Gear does not intend to use the scenes of the car out of charge as an illustration that the claimed range is false.”
