In 2006, thousands of new electric cars were purposely destroyed by the same car companies that built them. Today, less than five years later, the electric car is back—with a vengeance. Director Chris Paine gets extraordinary access behind the closed doors of Nissan, GM, and the Silicon Valley start-up Tesla Motors to chronicle the story of the global resurgence of electric cars. Do-it-yourself car converter Greg "Gadget" Abbott makes an unforgettable appearance in the film. Tim Robbins narrates.
