While at the 2007 Detroit Auto Show, Groovy Green’s Steve Balogh had the opportunity to chat with Chris Paine, the man behind ‘Who Killed The Electric Car?’. The video below is the tail-end of their conversation (with the beginning revolving around GM’s new hybrid Volt), but features a few juicy tidbits on some upcoming projects.
In the vid, Paine reveals that he’s working on a film about alternative fuel vehicles driving to Antarctica in a race tentatively titled ‘Test Zero’. The race will include a bio-fueled car, a hydrogen fuel-cell car, and battery-based car. According to Chris, the vehicles will race to the South Pole and back in an effort to prove they can tackle the harshest of conditions.
Steve Wozniak and Buzz Aldrin will be involved and Paine seems really psyched to get started. He also talked about a certain feeling of vindication with ‘Who Killed The Electric Car?’ telling Steve that he feels he was able to “make a difference.”
