    My favorite one:

    #4: LIMITED ABILITY TO DRIVE ON THE HIGHWAY
    Tesla’s all-electric cars recharge their batteries by using regenerative braking systems. Simply put, when the brakes are applied, the battery gets a slight charge. This can cause issues for those who require or appreciate long highway drives, as the car has virtually no opportunity to self-charge.

    Highway drives mean that battery power will quickly become an issue.

    I've solved this problem by leaving my foot on the brake!

    "While it remains true that Tesla cars do not omit emissions, Motor Junkie released a recent article which documents the fact that this does not make them “environmentally friendly.” According to this report, the process involved in producing the battery for one Tesla vehicle emits more emissions from the factory than driving a gas-powered car for 8 years. Yikes!"

    This would have had too be written by an idiot.

    Looks like fake news is targeting Tesla. My favourite is ‘No test drive’. I even got to go on the motorway during my test drive. Didn’t get that with Jag i pace!

    Terrible grammar too. If they "do not omit emissions", then they do produce emissions, which of course is patently untrue.

    The whole article is junk.

    thing.com is a Click Generator site. Its just aims to put Adverts in front of peoples eyes and generate revenue each time a new page loads. This is why each new "Fact" is a page load. It uses deliberately click bate titles to draw people in.

    Its basicly internet trash.

    Jaguar probably worried it would run out of range on the motorway!

    Never heard of that site and would never take anything serious from an unverified or unqualified source and looks like they are just writing Tesla articles for the clicks on bashing a popular brand at this moment.
