Episode Guide »
In 2006, thousands of new electric cars were purposely destroyed by the same auto companies that built them. Today, fewer than six years later, the electric car is back...with a vengeance. 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. Without using a single drop of foreign oil, this new generation of car is America's future: fast, furious and cleaner than ever. This program follows the race among major car-makers to be the first, the best and to win the hearts and minds of the public around the world. It's not just the next generation of green cars that's on the line; it's the future of the automobile itself
