"Revenge of the Electric Car" (2012) Revenge of the Electric Car by acclaimed filmmaker Chris Paine (Who Killed the Electric Car?) features the high-stakes race by General Motors, Tesla Motors, and Nissan for which company can first bring gas-free electric vehicles (EVs) to the masses -- for real this time. With tens of thousands of electric Nissan Leafs, Chevy Volts, and Tesla Roadsters being sold to eager consumers this year, and more than 30 additional electric models set to hit dealerships in the next few years, the film's debut could not be more timely. The film also tells the story of Greg "Gadget" Abbott, who retrofits gas-powered cars and turns them electric. The review on TheMovieBanter.com said: "One of the most interesting and entertaining documentaries I have ever seen, Revenge of the Electric Car lets you into the amazing lives of four different people and their perspective on the electric car." Hosted by Professor Dan Ross (Engineering) & the Engineering Club
