Revenge of the Electric Car sounds like the title of the latest supernatural mega flick. Not so. Rather . . . Electric Carchronicles director Chris Paine as he takes his film crew behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors to showcase 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.
