    I love "who killed the electric car" and "revenge of the electric car"....but I'm hoping that there are more out there.

    Anyone have any other faves?

    I've had mine called "Back to the Future" by a friend.

    I'm also considering renaming her from Samantha to R2D3 on someone else's suggestion.

    Did you mean to post it in FHOP? I can move it there if you want. Or were you looking for hybrid/EV documentaries?

    You'll have to rent this one but it is both entertaining and a highly fascinating look into the early days of electric motorcycle racing at the brutally tough Isle of Mann race.

    This is not a race video and is tastefully narrated by Ewan McGregor. Here's the synopsis: We follow the fortunes of several teams in the run-up to the 2009 race and on their return in 2010, from swaggering US hotshots MotoCzysz to shoestring Anglo-Indian contenders Team Agni and local heroes ManTTx Racing. Charge is the dramatic and highly entertaining inside story of an unlikely group of pioneers - obsessed visionaries, ambitious businessmen, new-tech eccentrics, government ministers and hardcore racers - from as far afield as India, the USA, Germany and Britain. It's a human story as well as a technological one - the teams' hopes for personal glory and commercial success ride on their green machines. It's about the dream of a clean, green world. It's about the dream of winning.
