Revenge of the Electric Car follows the current electric car renaissance through the eyes of four industry pioneers: Bob Lutz, the General Motors executive who inspired the Volt; Elon Musk, the young dot-com billionaire and head of Tesla Motors; Carlos Ghosn, who in 2009 astonished the car world by launching the Nissan LEAF; and Greg “Gadget” Abbott, one of thousands of do-it-yourselfers who are determined to start the Electric Vehicle revolution right now. Revenge of the Electric Car (2011) is directed by Chris Paine whose 2006 award-winning documentary, "Who Killed the Electric Car" was previously screened at the UNCG Sustainability Film Series. 90 minutes.
