If you missed out on seeing Revenge of the Electric Car in the theater or just want to watch Carlos Ghosn, Elon Musk and Bob Lutz push their respective companies to getting EVs out the door, mark your calendar for January 24th. That's when the DVD version of the movie hits, and it will offer repeat viewers a few fun extras once they've worn out the grooves on the main feature.
The big special bonus is the 35-minute panel that took place after the premiere screening during the Tribeca Film Festival. The DVD producers write that, "We especially love the moment when Wall Street Journal columnist Dan Neil says, 'you're not going to see electric tractor trailers out there any time soon...' and Tesla Motors CEO Elon Musk replies, 'yes you will,' then the crowd cheered."

Other bonuses include extra footage (Iceland?) and celebrity interviews. The movie, which is still playing in some theaters, will be coming to Netflix as well. If you're interested in owning it, you can buy the movie from Amazon for $21.99 or directly from the distribution company for $29.99. Why spend the extra money? The movie producers write:

As an independently distributed film we've done a lot of work ourselves to bring this film to you, and we ask that you please consider ordering the DVD directly from our distributor – which brings more money directly to the filmmakers and less to the middleman.

It doesn't appear that a Blu-ray version is coming, based on the DVD page. Read our review of the movie here.
