Revenge of the Electric Car

When electric cars first appeared on the market in the 1990s, mass production and commercialisation was abruptly - and dubiously - shut down, a story told in Chris Paine\'s first documentary WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR? Just a few short years later, the race is back on to develop an affordable, stylish electric car and win over a sceptical public. REVENGE OF THE ELECTRIC CAR goes behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, the innovative California start-up Tesla Motors and an independent car converter named Greg \'Gadget\' Abbott to find the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. This new generation of automobile emerges as the future: fast, furious and cleaner than ever.
