“Revenge of the Electric Car” is the follow up to the 2006 classic “Who Killed the Electric Car”.
Narrated by Tim Robbins, and from the director of “Who Killed the Electric Car?”, the 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.
It’s not just the next generation of green cars that’s on the line, it’s the future of the automobile itself!

“An engaging and dramatic story that transcends the debate about melting ice caps, at risk polar bears, vanishing South Sea islands and pending planetary devastation as it revs up the audience with its high-powered cast of characters all racing to invent the future.”
–Michael Rose, Huffington Post
“Fascinating … a hugely entertaining portrait. ‘Revenge’ makes for a refreshing and ultimately very effective change of pace compared with the strident, propaganda approach so often employed by similar documentaries. Even the most skeptical global warming deniers are apt to find themselves rooting for this disparate group of risk-takers who may well be spearheading the long delayed transition from oil reliance to new technology.”
–The Hollywood Reporter
“Riveting … highly entertaining. With unprecedented insider access, Paine presents a film that is less an environmental jeremiad than a portrait of the automotive industry as it seeks to catch up with the 21st century. ‘Revenge’ boasts the richest cast of quirky, compelling characters at Tribeca.”
“One of the best films at Tribeca … this follow-up to 2006’s ‘Who Killed the Electric Car?’ is distinguished by its unguarded access to GM’s Bob Lutz, Nissan’s Carlos Ghosn, and Tesla’s Elon Musk three colourful super-villains who might just save the planet.”
“The strength of ‘Revenge’ lies in its storytelling. The film’s multithreaded, character-driven narrative humanizes corporate entities that (Paine) once portrayed as monolithic, making a complex business story more gripping for its intimacy … The stakes are staggeringly high. We get the idea that building electric cars isn’t merely an act of political or social significance, it’s a brutally risky endeavour demanding superhuman devotion.”
