    What Drives Progress

    One of the most important details about the electric car to me is mentioned precisely once. By, as I recall, Danny DeVito. (A proud electric car owner himself, and apparently one of the people whose EV1s were taken away when GM decided there was no money in electric cars.) He's talking up the advantages of it, and he admits that the cleanliness of the things is directly proportionate to the source of electricity they're drawing on. An…

    At times it seemed like a really long car commercial, but it's a car I'd like to buy. Sometimes things could have been edited better. Namely the Anthony Kiedis excerpts. It almost felt like he was in a different documentary. It seemed like the director didn't know where to put his comments, so he just shoved them in at random places.
    All in all it was enjoyable, especially to see the kind of people that make the grand decisions that shape the way we drive. I'd recommend this documentary if you are bored and looking for time to kill, but don't expect too much.

    Less a look into the social and industrial machinery than the first movie (WHO KILLED THE ELECTRIC CAR?) was than a series of profiles of the men are attempting to revive the vehicle. In that way, I think it loses some of the urgency of its predecessor. Some of the biographical minutiae included feels relatively useless and out of place.

    Never saw Who Killed..., but this was fun and optimistic. It's great how Tesla has greatly surpassed this already with a nearly perfect car in the Model S with more to come as batteries improve.

    Ray Wert's skepticism about the Model S is quite funny in retrospect.

    Fun triple threat movie regarding three companies gambling on the electric car; Tesla, Nissan and a surprising return of GM after the EV1 disaster. What does it all mean? 2013 and things are still looking promising.

    An interesting, if overly optimistic, look at electric cars from 2008-2011. It tells the first chapter of a story that in 2013, we're only starting the second.

    More satisfying than the first doc, but perhaps more down to the happier ending. Still really interesting.

    A look into Nissan, GM and Tesla in the race to provide electric cars to the public without compromise. Worth a watch for the fascinating troubles Tesla faced which made me think that their current success and public PR fight will not serve them well in the long run.

    It's very interesting to see what has happened since the filming of this documentary has ended. The car GM were developing, the Volt, has not been a sales success. The car…

    I’m not a car guy. I don’t like them. I wish I didn’t have to have one. They’re wastes of money, wastes of time and wastes of energy once they hit the age where all you do is worry about how much longer they’ll last. Plus, they’re gross and a huge reason why our planet is slowly dying. I’d love nothing more than to move into a city and just hop on a subway or walk to wherever it is…
