Revenge of the Electric Car: 2011 Trailer Exciting or Not?

If you are a car lover and you watched the 2006 film ‘Who killed the Electric Car?‘, you’ll be very interested to know that the trailer for the follow up, titled ‘Revenge of the Electric Car’ has now been released following a Facebook campaign.

For those of you who don’t know, Revenge of the Electric Car is a documentary style film which follows the progression of car makers building electric cars ready to release to the public. Such car makers include the likes of General Motors, Tesla Motors and Nissan.

You can watch the trailer below and see it for yourself. The actual film will release on April 22nd on Earth Day at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York, as reported from the WSJ. The whole project centres around the idea of the electric car making a ‘comeback’ into the auto industry after previous concerns about whether the battery powered autos would be successful or not.

Since this is a unique film, the movie will not be shown everywhere after it’s April 22nd premiere. Instead, the film makers are asking for fans to email them with requests and the most requests from a particular city will be included on the list of places that the movie will be shown.

    At last REVENGE! Can't wait to see the film.

    As gas prices continue to rise, it will likely be much easier for electric cars to exact their revenge by appearing in growing numbers on American roads. As one of the activists who tried in vain to protect and save GM's last remaining EV1s in 2005, I feel vindicated every time I see another ad for GM's Chevy Volt. I also look forward to the day that GM produces another 100% all-electric car.
