Love automobile history? Car nuts and movie fans alike have been invited to the premiere of a new film titled Revenge of the Electric Car. Happening at 7:00 PM on Thursday, November 3rd in downtown Charleston, SC, the film is slated to air at the Hippodrome on the widescreen. Vanity Fair magazine has already hailed the film as, “Riveting and Highly Entertaining”, the provocative film is a sequel to the movie,”Who Killed the Electric Car?”
Why is the movie important to Americans and residents of the Low Country? Because the film reveals a little known secret kept by the automotive industry. “Without using a single drop of foreign oil, this new generation of car is America’s future: fast, furious, and cleaner than ever…” says the movie promoters.
In a day and age where high gas prices are affecting the mobility of residents all over the Southeast, are limiting car travel tourism to the Charleston region, and have caused inflation in the price of all food and consumer goods (due to the high cost of fuel for transport vehicles), Charleston residents are paying particular attention to how the auto industry is making decisions about the green transportation products they intend to build over the next twenty years.
REVENGE OF THE ELECTRIC CAR
In 2006, thousands of new electric cars were purposely destroyed by the same car companies that built them. Today, less than 5 years later, the electric car is back… with a vengeance. In “Revenge of the Electric Car,” director Chris Paine takes his film crew 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.
Plug In Carolina is hosting the movie at no charge to the public at the Hippodrome Widescreen Cinema, at 360 Concord St., next to the aquarium. Examples of electric vehicles from GM, Nissan, Mitsubishi, and others will be on display prior to the event. If interested, attendees may also participate in a question and answer session, immediately following the movie.
