Remember when we called the Arcimoto SRK "an electric car for the Facebook generation"? Apparently it's also an electric car for the "Firefly" generation. Actor Nathan Fillion got all excited about the car at its launch, and his remarks get at the main reasons for wanting an electric car: Spaceship resemblance and revenge.

Thank you for giving me a way to stick it to big oil and big auto companies. Because… I am a vengeful man. And they've been sticking it to me for a long time.

No matter how old I get, I don't think I'll ever get tired of the fact that it looks a little like a spaceship. I'm kind of into spaceships, so thanks for that.
