||Synopsis: With gasoline prices approaching $4/gallon, fossil fuel shortages, unrest in oil producing regions around the globe and mainstream consumer adoption and adoption of the hybrid electric car (more than 140,000 Prius' sold this year), this story couldn't be more relevant or important. The foremost goal in making this movie is to educate and enlighten audiences with the story of this car, its place in history and in the larger story of our car culture and how it enables our continuing addiction to foreign oil. This is an important film with an important message that not only calls to task the officials who squelched the Zero Emission Vehicle mandate, but all of the other accomplices, government, the car companies, Big Oil, even Eco-darling Hydrogen as well as consumers, who turned their backs on the car and embrace embracing instead the SUV. Our documentary investigates the death and resurrection of the electric car, as well as the role of renewable energy and sustainable living in our ... Written by Richard D. Titus

I think this movie is wonderful. Can't understand the low rating on
this site so far--I really wouldn't be surprised if those individuals
and industries who stand to lose profits from the revelations of the
movie, have voted negatively to artificially reduce its average rating
on this well-known site. I mean, jeez, the movie hasn't even debuted
yet (I saw an advanced screening)! And already it's only at a
four-something? C'mon! Since I leased and drove an EV daily for three
years(until it was rear-ended), I feel I'm in a good position to
realistically evaluate the movie. Let's face it, it's a story that
needs to be told. These issues impact everyone, since everyone is
affected by air quality, unstable foreign politics, gas prices,
transportation, and (lack of) consumer choice. EV technology is here,
now. Unlike the fuel cell, which is perpetually 10 years in the future.
Why was it taken away from the consumers who wanted it? Why does our
society not promote the mentality that multiple solutions (EVs, fuel
cells, hybrids, bicycles, mass transit, increased fuel economy, etc.
etc.) all need to be employed to attack our problems with pollution and
dependence on foreign oil? Why are there all these myths that the
electric car is undesirable and not viable? Consumers and policy makers
need to know this story.
As a driver who lived and followed the story, I think the movie does a
bang-up job of revealing it. The movie begins with a historical look at
the development of the electric car, what factors discouraged it back
then, what brought it back to life in the 1990's, its amazing features,
and why it is no longer available to consumers as a production vehicle.
(conversion kits only, folks!) The movie is filled with history,
politics, technology, innovation, and some very interesting
personalities. It's woven together well and is smooth and fascinating.
Even though it's a documentary, it will not put you to sleep! Go on--go
see it. Even if you don't agree with it, you won't regret it. We all
have a responsibility to be more active with these issues, and in the
meantime it's a fascinating story.
