If you've been feeling deprived of the sight of Nathan Fillion aboard a space buggy, then here's an awesome picture of Captain Tightpants showing off the prototype of a new three-wheeled electric car.
The highest end version of the Arcimoto "Red 5" SRV can go up to 160 miles on a single battery charge and reach speeds of 63 miles per hour, which isn't bad for an electric buggy. The best part of the whole shindig is Nathan Fillion's speech on unveiling the new car. Here it is in its entirety:
Thank you so much for simply yet so radically revolutionizing the auto industry, an industry that has seen so little change in the last century.
Thank you for making a cleaner vehicle for which the energy infrastructure already exists.
Thank you for seeing a need facing a mere 90% of the population, and filling it.
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.
Thank you for keeping it in Eugene.
Thank you for taking this venture upon yourselves, through the long hours of hard work, the sacrifices that you and your families have endured. Ladies and Gentlemen, you of Arcimoto have done something amazing and I hope that you are proud.
P.S. Last time I was here I think I left my iPhone charger in your offices, give me a call if you find it.
