They laughed at us, but now it's our turn to laugh back. Embrace your inner lemon. Let it drive you. This was meant to be alternate fuel's greatest moment. After today, everyone will race back to gasoline and we, the owners of the largest untapped oil reserve, will become the most powerful cars in the world! They'll come to us and they'll have no choice, because they will need us. And, they will finally respect us. So, hold your hoods high. After today, you will never be ashamed of who you are. Long live lemons!
~ Sir Miles Axlerod rising to power.

Sir Miles Axlerod (simply known as Miles Axlerod) is the main antagonist of Pixar's 12th full-length animated feature film, Cars 2.

He is the manipulative leader of the Lemon Cars who wanted to turn the entire world against alternative fuels and make money out of it. However, his plans were foiled when Mater exposed his crimes.

He was voiced by Eddie Izzard who also played Tony P. and Dr. Schadenfreude.


Miles Axlerod was a manipulative and scheming fraud that cared about no one but himself. He was able to hide the fact that he is the leader of the Lemons to the public rather easily, and he is a liar as well, even blaming Mater for leaking oil, when in fact, Axlerod did it. However, Axleord hid this fact by saying, "He's a little excited, isn't he?", meaning he used his intelligence for evil as well.

Axlerod had a secret role as the leader of the Lemons. Depite this, he never revealed himself to them (only his engine) over the majority of the movie. This is likely because he is hiding something he doesn't want his Lemon cars to know. He also made a promise to the rest of the Lemons, saying they will become the most powerful cars in the world, but it's unknown if he would keep the said promise. However, since he didn't care about other car's lives, this is very unlikely. Since It's very likely that Axlerod would break his promise to the Lemons, It's possible that he wants to take over the world, but this has never been confirmed.

Because of what Axlerod has done, Mater exposed him for the evil mastermind he is, and Axlerod was arrested because of it. It's also likely the Lemons found out that Axlerod was the "Big Boss" after he was arrested.


No, I know him. This is the bloke that called in on the television show. You're the one I have to thank. Ah, he's a little excited isn't he? You got a towel?
~ Axlerod blaming the oil leak on Mater.
Wait, somebody save me! The lorey's crazy! Keep away, you idiot! Someone do something! You're insane you are! DEACTIVATE!!!
~ Sir Miles Axlerod forcing to reveal his crimes by turning off the bomb to prevent killing himself.
How did the tow truck figure it out?!
~ Sir Miles Axlerod's last words as he's being arrested for his crimes.



  • So far, Axlerod is the only Pixar villain that never revealed his own true nature; Mater exposed it for him because the latter refused to confess it.
