"Now look at a cutaway drawing of a car engine. Remember all that stuff is there simply to provide us with the bit we need, the shaft. It seems a bit of a palaver, doesn’t it?

The electric motor makes so much more sense. It still gives us what we need, but now the rotating shaft is the only moving part. How much more elegant is that? It’s the right way to power a car, and we’ve known it since before the car was even invented, because the electric motor came first."

This, and a couple of other new articles (in particular the one about May's purchase of an i3rex) makes it sound like the BBC are grooming James May to enable Top Gear to continue their position as the world's number one car TV show, despite the fact that they utterly failed to call the EV revolution.
