A century in the future, travel has been made perfectly safe by the introduction of fully-automated AI-cars. But when these electrically powered, computer-controlled cars run amok, it's the mission of the Ex-Driver team to rev up their engines and give chase. It takes a particular kind of person to drive one of the temperamental gasoline cars, and the perky Lisa and laid-back Lorna think they have what it takes, in a predictable rehash of Fujishima's earlier You're Under Arrest, with a sop to younger viewers in the form of 13-year-old driver prodigy Soichi.
The movie (2002) featured Lorna, Lisa, and Soichi traveling to Santa Monica, California to take part in the eX-Driver World Meet, as the members of Team Japan. There they encounter Angela Gambino, the alienated daughter of ex-mob boss Rico Gambino, now the head of a supermarket chain, who in turn is the sponsor of Team USA-the bickering couple David and Kelly. Faced with sabotage and an apparent plot to gamble on the outcome of the World Meet's final race, they must work through the layers of intrigue and track down the true villain to bring him to justice. Of course, many car chases ensue.
When the movie was released on DVD (also in 2002) it came with a 27-minute extra, eX-Driver: Nina & Rei Danger Zone, a quasi-prequel in which the heroines must stop a miniature AI car with a tiny replica of Nina inside before it shuts down the whole of Tokyo's transport grid. There's a plot against the eX-Drivers lurking in the background somewhere, but once again the chases are the thing. This time the crew throws in a car/airplane chase down a runway, just for a change.
