About the Movie

REVENGE OF THE ELECTRIC CAR presents the recent resurgence of electric vehicles as seen through the eyes of four pioneers of the EV revolution. Director Chris Paine (Who Killed the Electric Car?) has had unprecedented access to the electric car research and development programs at General Motors, Nissan, and Tesla Motors, while also following a part time electric car converter who refuses to wait for the international car makers to create the electric cars the public demands. As more models of electric cars than ever before start to arrive in showrooms and driveways across the world, Chris Paine's film offers an inspiring, entertaining and definitive account of this revolutionary moment in human transportation. REVENGE OF THE ELECTRIC CAR follows these auto makers as they race each other to create the first, best, and most publicly accepted electric cars for the new car market.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: In the end, "Revenge of the Electric Car" is a slick, enjoyable valentine to a retooling industry. This optimistic film lacks the outrage of the earlier work, but that's O.K. A movement needs its triumphs too. – Daniel M. Gold, New York Times, Oct 20, 2011

Fresh: Wall Street might want to take notice of how quickly tides can change. – Mindy Farabee, Los Angeles Times, Oct 21, 2011

Fresh: Fascinating and highly entertaining... – Andrew O'Hehir,, Oct 23, 2011

Rotten: Saying electric cars are "zero emission" is about as truthful as saying you don't have to kill a cow when you buy a hamburger. – Kyle Smith, New York Post, Oct 21, 2011
