About the FILM

"Revenge of the Electric Car follows four entrepreneurs from 2007 through the end of 2010 as they fight to bring the electric car back to the world market in the midst of a global recession. The protagonists are Bob Lutz from General Motors, Elon Musk from the American start-up Tesla Motors, Carlos Ghosn from Nissan and Greg Abbott, an independent electric car converter from California.

"Whereas the 2006 film Who Killed the Electric Car? ended with the destruction of nearly 5,000 electric cars from California's clean air program, notably the GM EV1, the new film feautures the birth of a new generation of electric cars including the Chevrolet Volt, the Nissan Leaf and the Tesla Roadster."
