"In 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 Revenge of the Electric
Car, director Chris Paine takes his film crew behind the closed doors
of Nissan, GM, and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors to chronicle the
story of the global resurgence of electric cars. Without using a single drop of
foreign oil, this new generation of car is America’s future: fast, furious, and
cleaner than ever."
