Movie: “Revenge of the Electric Car” available at Whole Foods.
Just found the awesome movie ‘Revenge of the Electric Car’ available at Whole Foods.
This movie is very well made and is the follow up to ‘Who killed the Electric Car’ which documented how the electric car got virtually killed around the years 2005- 2006. This follow up movie has won numerous awards including Best Documentary from the Environmental Media Association.
In this documentary you see the story of how the Electric car has been making a come back after being almost completely anialated just a few years ago. I do believe that the succes of the Prius, although not a pure electric car, helped keep the faith alive that people want alternatives.
The movie features extensive interviews with Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla, Bob Lutz (Chevy Volt), Carlos Ghosn (Nissan Leaf) as well as a number of other celebrities and movers and shakers in the automotive electrification arena. Check out your local Whole Foods for a copy of this extremely informative and fun to watch movie and an insight into where we are headed with electric cars.
One succes story is the Nissan Leaf of which over 28,000 have been sold so far since its introduction beginning 2011. 11,000 of those are driving around the USA. The other is the fact that Tesla is shipping its first Model S since last week!
