Revenge of the Electric Car  

Directed by Chris Paine (Mongrel Media)

As the old proverb goes, success is the best revenge. In the follow up to his critically acclaimed 2006 documentary Who Killed the Electric Car?, Chris Paine’s Revenge of the Electric Car details the insurgence of electric vehicles on the commercial car world, following Nissan and GM as they attempt to make the world’s first affordable electric vehicle. Where Killed focused on the political reasons for the electric car never reaching the mass market, Revenge is a more romanticized affair, championing Nissan’s CEO Carlos Ghosn and ex-GM vice chairman Bob Lutz as they battle against each other and the outdated automotive industry. More entertaining than Who Killed the Electric Car?, Revenge perfectly captures one of the most important moments in the history of the industrial world.
