Hot on the heels of the Oscars, it’s the Electric Awards 2021. Being close in date is where the similarities end for these two glittering ceremonies, however. Unlike emissions from the Academy Awards - overlong speeches and whatever comes out the back of those stretched Lincolns - the air is that bit sweeter for our Electric Awards winners this evening. Also, we’re coming to you from a service station in Braintree, Essex, which is a tack the Academy is yet to try.

Join Top Gear Magazine editor Jack Rix as he reveals the greatest electric cars in the world right now from Gridserve’s very fancy, state-of-the-art EV recharging forecourt. In the mix we’ve got Lotus’ Evija EV hypercar, the retro Renault 5 Concept, the Polestar 2 featuring some Tom Ford off-road adventure modifications, the Porsche Taycan Cross Turismo estate, and Audi’s incredibly sharp e-tron GT. Enjoy a whole host of never-seen-before videos, plus we’ll be joined by Paddy, Freddie and Chris as the Top Gear telly boys tell us their personal favourites from the world of electrified motoring.

Enough waffle. Let’s roll out the red carpet for the Electric Awards 2021, sponsored by Hankook.

Great video. THANK YOU. Challenge Top Gear to do the Top Country promoting electric Vehicles. Consider TAXES on buying. Bonus in value and volume. And most of all TAXES when Charging. Example of: Portugal have 7 Taxes to the client that goes on one public charging. That means if we buy 0.9€ of electric we must pay 5€ of TAXES .... to have 15Kw is 8€. On normal road we have consumption of 20Kw if we go all the way slower that the speed limit. Do Government want to take care of the environment or only they pocket....and pressure auto Makers to change all only for the marketing and social media?! Thank you

I would've been disappointed if any car but the taycan cross turismo got the best ev award. I mean, the taycan saloon didn''t really look bad in any way, but audi's etron gt definitely looked better. And then comes the cross turismo. I'm pretty sure ppl will agree with me, that car is indeed the best looking estate out there, It's almost as if porsche made an estate, tried coverting it to a saloon and sent the estate out for sale anyway. What an amazing car. I can't believe I'm saying this, but even though I'm a crazy petrol head, if i had the money, I'd buy the cross turismo over anything else in that range.

So where's the Jag I-Pace, while not Tesla quick 4.5 secs is respectful and a beautiful looking package both inside and out, the only flaw I thought was that the rear vision in the mirror was a little limited, but apart from that the futuristic white leather and space age console was brilliant along with the active damping and handling in sport mode, and my other issue was that sadly I couldn't afford to buy one.

I know TG is more about entertainment than a review of cars but there are some serious omissions here. The Tesla model 3 has done what would have seemed impossible 5 years ago, that of outselling the iconic BMW 3 series globally, ditto the Merc C-class and Audi A4. It goes to show that EVs are no longer competing in a discrete category, they are competing an beating established fossil cars too. Then what about the smaller, more affordable EVs that are beating the fossil competition such as the Renault Zoe, VW ID3, Hyundai Kona and my ride, the excellent Kia e-NIro? TG is fun but if you want to know about EVs check out The Fully Charged show or Johnny Smith on the Late Brake Show.

Sorry to break it to the tesla fan boys. The electric trend is been accelerated by the eu and California's regulations. 2030 ban on new petrol and diesel cars. In 2035 the Chinese will also be banning sales of petrol vehicles. There is also talk of the UE regs been brought forward to 2025. So no tesla isn't the reason for this acceleration

I've ordered my Tesla and stated monthly payments, but the car is still trapped in a later delivery schedule... 🤨🤔 My Tesla is model TSLA, and I kept putting funds there, but NO CAR YET?! I've written a complaint to Elon as well, but the man is probably way too busy and/or does not reply to any "Joe" just because... 🤷🏻

"(Polestar) okay it doesn't go quite as far as a Model 3, and the charging infrastructure available to it isn't quite as good, but what it does have is manually adjustable dampers".🤯 Don't quite see how this logic works in real world where people would want manually adjustable dampers over better range and charging infrastructure.

Simon Webb
Simon Webb 10 giorni fa
@Stijn 4 disagree - they got around that one by making shitty/useless hybrid cars. Fully electric cars are only being reluctantly made/developed by legacy Auto because of public demand which has been created by Tesla. Because they delayed they have allowed Tesla an unassailable lead. GM developed the EV1 in 1996 then scrapped the project because they realised it would affect their connected ICE profits (dealership/servicing/parts etc)

The only reason any of these cars exist is because of Tesla and Rimac. And Top Gear keeping up their bias ignoring the best electric car brands to talk about an e2008, a failed volvo that doesn't make sense and three samey VW group cars. And after all that noise everyone with half a brain will still go buy a Tesla. Range value performance tech no one is close it's laughable.

Interesting that Tesla doesn't get a model mentioned. I wonder is that because Tesla sees itself as a tech company not a car manufacturer? Or is it because the customer can pay nearly 7 k for an auto pilot function which isn't an auto pilot function? Or it is because they don't handle at all well? Or is it because they catch fire? And when they do it takes hours to put the fire out because the batteries keep on reigniting it?
