In 2006, we learned what led to the demise of the electric car in the popular documentary Who Killed the Electric Car. Now, it’s revenge time, baby!
Director Chris Paine is months away from releasing his highly-anticipated follow-up film Revenge of the Electric Car and wants to give fans the first look. On November 15th, Paine announced that the film’s trailer will be launched exclusively on Facebook once their fan page hits 10,000 members.
The film, which is set for an early 2011 release, tells a new story of the global resurgence of electric vehicles and takes audiences behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors.
“We’ve developed a loyal and passionate community of electric car enthusiasts, environmentalists, and other fans of ‘Who Killed the Electric Car?’ over the years,” says Director Chris Paine. “It only makes sense to share the first public release of the trailer with fans and friends first, through an outlet where they connect to each other.”
