Did you see the 2006 documentary “Who Killed the Electric Car”? Director Chris Paine has created a sequel…”Revenge of the Electric Car”. Unlike “Who Killed the Electric Car” (a favorite film of mine) that focused on electric vehicle (EV) activists fighting big corporations, “Revenge of the Electric Car”, according to their website, focuses on industry insiders proving that sometimes change is inevitable. The lead cast members are Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk, Bob Lutz – a former General Motors Vice Chair, Nissan’s Chief Executive Officer Carlos Ghosn, and gadget guru Greg Abbott. The film is narrated by prominent actor and EV activist Tim Robbins (who starred in Bull Durham, The Shawshank Redemption, and Mystic River).
I haven’t seen the latest film yet, but it is on my top “to do” list when the film has a public screening near me – (request that the film be shown in your area). If you have a large enough group that would like to get together and see the film (Auto Upkeep Instructors, check this out), you can request a screening brought to you.
