Revenge of the Electric Car opens in theaters on 10/21: http://www.revengeoftheelectriccar.com/screening-dates.html

In 2006, as many as 5,000 modern electric cars were destroyed by the major car companies that built them. Today, less than 5 years later, the electric car is back… with a vengeance.

In Revenge of the Electric Car, director Chris Paine takes his film crew behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors to find the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. Without using a single drop of foreign oil, this new generation of car is America’s future: fast, furious, and cleaner than ever.

With almost every major car maker now jumping to produce new electric models, Revenge follows the race to be the first, 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.

  2. It just so happens that’s how long people sleep! And if you get 2 10kW outlets I can get a Model S that charges in 4 hours. On the road you can recharge 80% of that in 30 minutes, FOR FREE. So, yeah, whatever. Things are already good. They’re just going to get better now.

  3. This is what sucks for oil&gas: EVs use a 1/3 of the energy to move around. They’re lowing hanging fruit for efficiency, like CFLs or LEDs, but times a millions–millions of barrels of oil a day.

    Sure, it’s replaced by methane at the power plant, but 1/3 as much! And, finally, most of the charging is at night, when much of the baseload power is totally wasted anyway. Oil&gas are going to lose most passenger petrol sales, and replace it with less than 1/5 the number of BTUs in methane! DIE!!!

    So much for a fancy golf cart.
    And talking about oil companies and auto makers suppressed the electric car technology i’m not surprised why EV can only go 300 miles max instead of 600 miles.

  13. It is not the sales of the cars >100 last year but the sale of carbon credits for driving an electric car that is making the tesla show a profit.

  14. There is still no way to store the same amount of electrical energy that is as compact, safe, easy to transport and reliable as the energy that is chemically contained in gasoline. "When" they make a car that can go 500 miles at 60 mph, recharge in 15 minutes, have enough room for my family to ride in, cost less than a gas car I would buy it. We have been pouring money into this technology since the 70’s and all that we have are better golf carts but nothing close that matches an old 57 Chevy

  15. Netflix is the only place that i know of. You can try out their free trial for a month.

  16. You can actually EMP proof a lot of electronic devices..This is our future because even natural causes can cause the same effects as an EMP bomb. I fear nature more than these terrorists.

  17. I like the concept of totally electric car, but has to cope with several flaws in its concept: It has to be profitable: currently most of the car companies make more profit from spare parts than from the sale of the car, so if has less components, the profit will be lower for companies or the price of those parts will be high, scaring many customers or make people go for a model in which have to pay for many little things (batteries´ rent and so) which is quite annoying.

  18. who’s the guy at 0:54 who says "Elon’s going to lose his shirt, Elon is going to get crushed"?

  19. The Tesla is DEF cool technology.
    It’s just too bad that the Musk, owner of the company, got rich running the criminally and morally corrupt racket called Paypal….. Maybe if he provides the impetus to kill the internal combustion engine, that’ll make up for ripping off so many people. Signed, Member of a, settled out of court, class action lawsuit against Paypirates.

  20. Whereas IC engines are limited to one power source, electric vehicles are not. You have taken the worst case scenario, and assumed that it is true for all well to wheel analyses. Coal will gradually be phased out.

    There is greater energy security with electric vehicles.

    You have thousands of point pollution sources with IC vehicles (poor logistics). It is easier to control emissions on one fixed point than control the emissions of thousands of moving ones. Who even cares about catalytics…

  21. You a re a very stupid person!
    Tesla Motors just annouced that they are now profitable, and will be paying their government loan off 5 years early.
    They are selling Model S’s faster than they can make them. There’s a 9 month waiting list of nearly 20,000 buyers. Infact the Model S is the top selling true luxury car in America, bar none.
    The company is now nearing 4,000 employees, and growing.
    You’re thinking of Fisker. You fail to realize this because again, you are a stupid, stupid person.

  22. The same Tesla model S, $70,000, that no one wants to buy. Tesla just laid off 75% of its work force. Does the name Solyndra ring and bells

  23. Make all cars electric and figure out a profitable portfolio of sustainable and renewable energies, would make cities greener, cleaner and more comfortable to live in. Any physicists out there building a Tesseract type of unlimited energy source? 😛

  24. because you lack the brainpower to understand them!

  25. Google "Tesla announces layoffs" and get >400,000 results

    The selling of carbon credits is what is floating the profit line for Tesla not its cars. When you can sell indulgences to the masses to expunge their eco-sins is their way to make a profit.

  26. Totally wrong, market forces are in fact natural as they are organic. When markets are free of gov’t interference [only legit role for gov’t is dispute settlement, contract enforcement, and punishing those who defraud or use force to achieve their ends] order comes forth spontaneously. Think about this: How does Los Angeles get fed each day? It’s through, literally millions of interactions and transactions – most of which occur w/out any gov’t directives or orders. You only criticize markets

  27. What was that load of shite about?

  28. Hey thymaster, stop being a GM hater. The volt is MORE than an EV. Keep it under 40 miles and it’s an EV. In case you need more then you have backup. What’s wrong with that? Didn’t you watch the film.

  29. And what happened when everyone demanded more fuel for their cars? The infrastructure adjusted. This can all be done, but unfortunately people are more concerned about profit than sustainability.

  30. I think it’s the producer or something. He’s just quoting what’s been said about Elon quite a few times! And yet he hangs in there and his companies take their success to the next level again and again!

  31. Consider the starting battery in your everyday car. All that lead is actually recycled successfully and safely!

  32. Where can I watch this at ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) besides Netflix. Does anyone know ?

  33. Lithium ion batteries can be recycled.

  34. One of my favorite movies. I watch it almost everyday on Netflix. It convinced me to buy electric. Thanks Chris.

  35. markets are decoupled from the natural laws of our world. All that is determined in markets is PRICE, that is it… So sure, lets have MARKETS determine everything for us, so in 50 years, we will all be living in a overflooded bowl of hot soup thanks to us trusting in "markets"….

  36. I’m looking forward to the 3rd film, as Carlos Ghosn called it, The Domination of the Electric Car.

  37. I bought over 1,000 32"x38" EMP shielding bags and hung them up all over my walls, floors, and ceilings just for the hell of it. I think my home can withstand an EMP and just incase it doesn’t, I have thousands of electronics stored in my safe, lol.

  38. I been hearing that rumor for 30 years

  39. There is still no way to store the same amount of electrical energy that is as compact, safe, easy to transport and reliable as the energy that is chemically contained in gasoline. "When" they make a car that can go 500 miles on a charge at 60 mph and can recharge in 15 minutes and have enough room for my family to ride in and cost less than a gas car I would buy it. We have been pouring money into this technology since the 70’s and all that we have are fancy golf carts.

  40. But you have a good point with the power grids. We have blackouts with air conditioners being plugged in the summer lol.

  41. New Jersey sucks.

  42. Taking the dependency of oil based fuels away from cars, means that as energy becomes cleaner / greener, the cars are also cleaner / greener. It’s estimated that hooking your car up to the power grid costs up to 4x less and possibly similar in CO2 emissions.

  43. The only published figure I’ve seen is $1.6B; BTW, I have nothing against electric vehicles, I just believe markets NOT taxpayer dollars, should determine their viability.

  44. Other flaw is the charging, if you have your own garage, perfect, but most of the people don´t have one.There is the idea of "batteries stations" where they change the unloaded battery of your car for a new full one in few minutes automatically, but that is an extremly expensive service. Perhaps the idea of hybrid with biofuels in the future instead total electric car would be closer to what will get.

  45. Winner: Tesla

  46. Great place to learn how to make it yourself much much cheaper. Just google for ‘inplix’ website:)

  47. i guess this is the sequel to "who killed the electric car". if its not obviosu, electric cars are the future b/c our reliance on gasoline is costing us economically.

  48. Here’s the problem with electric cars: They run on COAL! How do you think most electricity is made? Instead of distributing the pollution evenly like gas powered cars, it’s concentrated in the areas around coal-burning power plants, while you self-righteous liberals grin like possums, thinking you’re helping the world. What happens to our already fragile power grids when the whole world plugs their 240v chargers in? Hybrids are much better, as they produce their own electricity.

  49. ih have seen one "it is not a fancy golf cart"… now as for the rest of that i heard there trying to make a care right now that will get 675 miles at 60 and charge in 10 min, but sadly i will say it is probably just a rumor

  50. After that one run the Tesla must recharge for 8 hours. It is one the oil and car companies that holds back the EV it is the battery technology. There is still no way to story the same amount of electrical energy that is contained chemically in gas.
