(Sacramento, CA)
Friday, November 04, 2011
The new documentary is called "Revenge of the Electric Car." This time it's a comeback story, with cars like the Chevy Volt portrayed as part of a revolution in the automotive industry. The film's producer is Sacramento native Jessie Deeter. Deeter and her crew traveled the world for the project, filming in countries like Japan and Israel. But she describes "Revenge of the Electric Car" as very much a California story. And at the center of the tale, Tesla Automotive's CEO Elon Musk.
 
(DEETER): "He is the perfect, perfect character to get Americans to understand some of the  challenges of getting electric cars to market and getting them deployed in real numbers."
 
The documentary also profiles more  traditional players, like Carlos Ghosn, the CEO of Nissan, who has put a lot of his company's chips behind the Leaf. The documentary opens in Sacramento next Friday.
