Revenge of the Electric Car

Synopsis
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. From the director of WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR? this 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.
