Virtually all of the electric vehicle industry’s history has been documented by environmentalist filmmaker Chris Paine. His 2006 documentary “Who Killed the Electric Car” accused U.S. automakers of crushing EV development in the 1990s. Now, his new film, “The Revenge of the Electric Car,” says the industry has turned a corner and brought EVs back from the dead.
Anchor Thalia Assuras talks to Paine about how the auto industry has shifted gears to view EVs as a business opportunity instead of a threat. And Paine provides a private look at his home to show how he lives an environmentally responsible and EV-powered life.
