Revenge of the Electric Car

USA 2011 / 90min.
Director Chris Paine. Producers Jessie Deeter, P.G. Morgan.
Narrated by Tim Robbins

By 2006, thousands of new electric cars were purposely destroyed by the same car companies that built them. Today, less than 5 years later, the electric car is back... with a vengeance.

In his follow up film to Who Killed the Electric Car?, Paine takes us behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors as well as a part time electric car converter who refuses to wait for the international car makers.

The film chronicles the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. Without using a single drop of oil, this new generation of car is the worldís future: fast, furious and cleaner than ever.

As more electric cars than ever start to arrive in showrooms and driveways across the world, Paine’s film offers an inspiring, entertaining and definitive account of this revolutionary moment in human transportation.

With almost every major car maker now jumping to produce new electric models, Paine follows the race to be the first, the best, and to win the hearts and minds of the public around the world. Itís not just the next generation of green cars thatís on the line. Itís the future of the automobile itself.
