Range anxiety. It haunts so many of us. Confused as to what range anxiety is? Allow us to explain. It is the syndrome that plagues owners (and potential owners) of vehicles run by electricity. When it comes to electric cars, people have long feared running out of battery power and being isolated on a road with nobody to help them and nowhere to go. But a new electric car hopes to ease the fears of all.
This post has been sponsored by Chevrolet. Their Chevy Volt is an extended-range (E-REV) capable electric vehicle. What does that mean exactly? Just know that it can run long and far on a single charge. This isn’t some ordinary hybrid we’re talking about. The Volt balances out any electrical range issues by using its traditional gasoline engine whenever the specter of a low or drained battery looms. How cool is that?
Well, it’s nice in theory, but can the Volt help you when you really need it? I’m talking about being surrounded on a desolate road by flesh eating zombies. Yes, zombies. The type you see in movies like Zombieland, Dawn of the Dead or the video game “Dead Island.” That’s where the Volt can truly step up to help you. Other cars might leave you in a rut, but not the Volt. But, you didn’t think we would just inform you about a car without some sort of film slant, did you? Nah.
This all ties in with MOFILM, a film community that helps filmmakers gain income and recognition while they develop video content that serves as advertising for big brands (i.e.: Chevrolet). MOFILM events draw filmmaking luminaries such as Kevin Spacey, Jesse Eisenberg (of the aforementioned Zombieland) and Spike Lee. You can read more about MOFILM here but why not watch what some creative filmmakers have done by putting their talents to use in helping to promote the Chevrolet Volt? Watch one of these videos below and use the links in the enlarged video to access other fun short films created by this collaborative partnership. Can you dig it? I know you can.
