On September 19, it is showing the follow-up to Chris Paine’s award winning 2006 documentary Who Killed the Electric Car? which was an exploration of why electric car production seemingly ground to a halt. His new documentary Revenge of the Electric Car tells a very different story. It follows four car manufacturers, big and small, as they strive to build the next generation of electric cars. Will they win over a sceptical public? Can the cars be faster and cleaner than ever before? Will they turn a profit?
Following the screening there will be a discussion with the film’s director, Paine, and an expert electric bar battery engineer, who was involved in the in the record-breaking Racing Green Endurance team that drove an electric racing car along the Pan-American highway from Alaska down to Argentina.
