"Revenge of the Electric Car"
On Wednesday, GreenHeroes attended the opening night of Planet in Focus, an environmental film festival taking place in Toronto.
“Revenge of the Electric Car” was the documentary featured. It’s a heroic ride through the trials faced by executives from Nissan, GM and Tesla and an independent gas-to-electric car converter as they compete for their slice in the electric car market.
What’s particularly interesting about this documentary is that it does not take the familiar documentary road of demonizing corporations. It presents the electric car as a business with the executives seeing the lucrative potential of the market and taking big risks in a floundering economy.
