Product Description

Product Description

By 2006, as many as 5,000 electric cars were destroyed by the major car companies that built them. Today, the electric car is back... with a vengeance. Without using a single drop of foreign oil, this new generation of car is America s future: fast, furious, and cleaner than ever. Narrated by Tim Robbins, and from the director of Who Killed the Electric Car?, the film goes behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors and an independent car converter to find the story of the global resurgence of electric cars, following the race to be the first and the best, and to win the hearts and minds of the public around the world. It s not just the next generation of green cars that s on the line, it s the future of the automobile itself.

Fascinating ... a hugely entertaining portrait. (REVENGE) makes for a refreshing and ultimately very effective change of pace compared with the strident, propaganda approach so often employed by similar documentaries. Even the most skeptical global warming deniers are apt to find themselves rooting for this disparate group of risk-takers who may well be spearheading the long delayed transition from oil reliance to new technology --The Hollywood Reporter

Riveting ... highly entertaining. With unprecedented insider access, Paine presents a film that is less an environmental jeremiad than a portrait of the automotive industry as it seeks to catch up with the 21st century. (REVENGE) boasts the richest cast of quirky, compelling characters at Tribeca. --Vanity Fair

One of the best films at Tribeca ... this follow-up to 2006's Who Killed the Electric Car? is distinguished by its unguarded access to GM's Bob Lutz, Nissan's Carlos Ghosn, and Tesla's Elon Musk three colorful super-villains who might just save the planet --Esquire
