I got to see the long awaited Revenge of the Electric Car yesterday, and have written a review (see link below).

It starts with a brief recap of WKtEC - then dives into a way-behind-the-scenes insider view of events at Tesla, GM and Nissan as they each developed their respective electric car programs. "Insider" as in - inside the CEO's offices, in the factories, on the proving grounds, etc.

Chris Paine spoke at the showing I attended, and said to us that attendance at these early showings is important in order for this movie to be more widely seen. He urged us to see it, to tell our friends, etc. I think this is an immensely important movie if only as a historical record of what happened, and perhaps also as a vehicle to affect the conversation around electric cars.

A claim this movie makes is that not only are electric cars back, but that they're inevitable. That's not just Chris Paine blowing smoke, it's Bob Lutz (GM's Vice Chairman) saying it.

Where WKtEC just makes you angry - RotEC is a celebration. Three thumbs up!!!
