After The Grand Tour host Jeremy Clarkson, 60, was questioned about his honest views over electric cars on Twitter, the Top Gear star landed himself in a heated spat with one disappointed fan. The car-enthusiast seemingly didn’t hold back in his online comebacks last month.
It comes after Jeremy shared his delight over discovering there were six seasons of The Americans on Amazon.
In May, the TV broadcaster wrote to his 7.1 million followers: “Deep joy.
“Thought The Americans on Amazon was about to end after three seasons,” he confessed.
“Now discover there’s six. Long may the lockdown continue.”
Once one fan noticed his statement online, they rushed to ask the presenter their thoughts on electric cars which soon developed into a debate.
They wrote in response: “On a completely unrelated subject… if Mr Clarkson ever goes for an electric car… would it be powered by this? … even had his face on it!”
To which Jeremy replied: “Don’t worry. I will never buy an electric car.
“I think they are unpleasant and stupid.”
Then, a month down the line, one follower who didn’t agree with his comments expressed their concerns by announcing: “Well I have a Lexus and get 65mpg off a hybrid. All cars will be electric.
“If you care about Bangladesh sinking into oblivion, you try to make a difference,” they added.
“Economy matters to millennials who have less money. In sport mode, I can beat Beamers at the lights with ease.”
Although Jeremy hadn’t noticed their remark until a month later, the host didn’t hold back as he penned: “You get 65 mpg and don’t tell me, your penis is a foot long.”

While it has been clear Jeremy has been keeping suspiciously quiet on social media recently, on Wednesday evening he confronted one Twitter follower to confirm that he is “not dead”.
It comes after Jeremy hit out at one fan’s remark, which has now been deleted from an account which no longer exists.
The journalist wrote to the blocked user: “What? Sad I’m not dead?” after fans discovered he hadn’t tweeted for over a month.
Once the Amazon star made his return online, fans were thrilled to see his comments as one person replied: “He’s returned!! He is the messiah.”
Meanwhile, Jeremy recently discussed his devastation over British actress Kirstin Scott Thomas, 60, unfollowing him on Instagram.
It comes after Jeremy was asked who his dream passenger would be on George Nicole’s new podcast The Drive Through.
The host revealed: “It’s definitely Kristen Scott Thomas. She unfollowed me on Instagram. I can hardly bring myself to speak.
“I have no idea what I’ve done. I’m completely heartbroken.”
