Conversation after the film.
By 2006, thousands of new electric cars were purposely destroyed by the same car companies that built them. Today, less than 5 years later, the electric car is back... with a vengeance.

In Revenge of the Electric Car, director Chris Painetakes his film crew behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors to chronicle the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. Without using a single drop of foreign oil, this new generation of car is America’s future: fast, furious, and cleaner than ever.
With almost every major car maker now jumping to produce new electric models, Revenge follows the race to be the first, 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.
Revenge of the Electric Car is narrated by Tim Robbins. The primary cast includes CEO and President of Renault and Nissan Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Tesla Motors Elon Musk, Former Vice Chairman of GM Bob Lutz and EV do-it-yourselfer Greg “Gadget” Abbott.
"'Revenge' is that rare artifact, a snapshot of a major industry shift on its way to a tipping point... a slick, enjoyable valentine to a retooling industry."
DANIEL GOLD, NEW YORK TIMES (CRITICS' PICK)
"A entertaining roller coaster ride... well shot and sharply paced (with) genuine human drama. Wall Street might want to take notice of how quickly tides can change."
MINDY FARBEE, LOS ANGELES TIMES
"Sleekly designed with excellent mileage, 'Revenge' is a balm for beaten down times. A conversion narrative in several deftly interlocking parts, 'Revenge' tells the story of that rare moment when the bottom line finally dovetails with the greater good"
