Benoit made a name for himself with the EV community, attracting a huge subscriber base of electric car enthusiasts due to a number of projects involving Teslas that he would take on. His most recent, according to Vice, was a rebuilt 2013 Tesla S P85.
But the YouTube love he was getting changed suddenly when he posted one of his latest projects called: "Why I'm selling my Tesla and going back to Gas."
The video was supposed to be an explanation of why Benoit was selling his most recent Tesla project in favor of purchasing a gas-powered car. But the Tesla cult didn't allow the video to air more than a couple of hours. Shortly after posting the video, it was taken down by YouTube for violating Community Guidelines.
He said at the beginning of the video: "This video is going to be a little bit different. In this episode I'm going to re-building a Tesla Model S. It's going to be from start to finish in one episode, while I talk over the reasons why I'm switching back to gas. Kind of ironic, isn't it?"
