Jay Leno likes Tesla EVs
Jay particularly is fond of Tesla’s new EVs or electric vehicles. He has talked in detail about this new innovation of Tesla on his website as well as his TV program Jay Leno’s garage. The fifth season of this show will commence on 28 August 2019.
Jay is very excited about the future of EVs in the world. He said:
“For new technology to succeed, it can’t be equal. It’s got to be better and [Tesla] sort of solved the battery problem. It can go 350 to 400 miles at a charge.
“There’s no maintenance. They’re faster than the gas car. So there’s almost no reason to have a gas car unless you’re doing long-haul duty.”
Jay Leno and his kinds words for Elon Musk
Jay is also all praises for the CEO of Tesla Elon Musk. He said:
“I think (Tesla) is impressive. It should be applauded,”
“Here’s a guy building an American car in America using American labor and paying them a union wage — the whole bit. Why are you not rooting for it to be successful? I don’t quite understand that.”
He is certain that EVs are the future of the automobile industry and will soon override the fuel-driven vehicles.
