2011 Nissan Leaf 'Runs Out of Juice' During Top Gear Filming

May 16, 2011

Top Gear fans in Lincoln, England, got a chance to live the dream and walk among their idols when the Top Gear UK team stopped into town to film an episode. TV hosts Jeremy Clarkson and James May enlisted the help of the townspeople when the 2011 Nissan Leaf they were filming ran out of juice and needed to be pushed near an outlet where it could be charged.


However, it was revealed several days later that TG intentionally drained the Leaf's battery to provide for some typical reality show suspense. Surprise, surprise.
