Revenge of the Electric Car

Preview by Jack Foley

REVENGE Of The Electric Car chronicles the greatest shift in technology in automobile history and rolls onto DVD and VOD on August 6, 2012 courtesy of Dogwoof.

In 2006, major car companies destroyed thousands of electric cars that they had created, now they believe, it is time for the second coming.

Director Chris Paine (Who Killed The Electric Car?), takes us behind-the-scenes of the companies that are in the race for the resurgence of the electric car.

We go behind the closed doors of major car manufacturers Nissan, GM, and Tesla Motors, as well as independent car converters, following the development from concept through to working vehicle, the financial problems, successes and failures to see who will launch the first and best electric car that will win over the public.

We follow the electric car renaissance through the eyes of four industry pioneers: Bob Lutz is the larger than life General Motors Executive, a gruff, cigar-smoking maverick who seems to have stepped straight off the set of Mad Men.

Elon Musk is the young dot-com billionaire and head of Tesla Motors, decides that Silicon Valley can teach Detroit a few lessons about car making.

Carlos Ghosn is a former EV sceptic, Ghosn astonishes the car world in 2009 by announcing the launch of the Nissan LEAF: an affordable electric vehicle meant for the mass market.

Backyard converter Greg “Gadget” Abbott is one of thousands of do-it-yourselfers, determined to start the EV revolution right now.

Narrated by Tim Robbins and with appearances from Danny DeVito and Jon Favreau, this fascinating film follows the drama and excitement to find out who will win the race to create the ultimate electric car.

Special Features include a Tribeca Film Festival Talk featuring a panel discussion after the film premiere, Film Festival in NY 2011, with Chris Paine, Elon Musk, Carlos Ghosn, Dan Neil, and moderated by David Duchovny and bonus footage, including Dave Barthmuss talking to Arnold Schwarzenegger.
