Who killed the electric car? Not GM. Revenge of the Electric Car, a new film from the makers of the original film criticizing GM for pulling its EVs off the market takes viewers behind the scenes at GM, Nissan, and Tesla as they race to develop the world’s first viable EVs. This time around, GM comes off in a positive light and has a chance to explain why the company scrapped its EV1 program.

The new film, which opened Friday at the Tribeca Film Festival, follows then GM vice-chairman Bob Lutz, Nissan’s Carlos Ghosn, and Tesla founder Elon Musk as they try to reinvent the automotive industry and make it sustainable. “We focused on what kind of people it takes to really change something fundamentally,” said director Chris Paine.
