In 2006, documentarian Chris Paine explored the promising rise and suspiciously fast fall of the EV1, General Motors’ first mass-marketed electric car, in the documentary "Who Killed the Electric Car?"

Paine’s follow-up film, "Revenge of the Electric Car," finds new hope in electric-powered automotive technology, as he follows four companies competing to bring their alternative-fuel cars — including the Chevy Volt and the Nissan Leaf — to the market.
