Nathan Fillion, star of the never-should-have-been-cancelled TV Show “Firefly” and current star of “Castle” is in the market for an electric car (http://electrovelocity.com/tag/electric-cars/) and he thinks he might have just found it. It’s called the Arcimoto Pulse (http://electrovelocity.com/tag/arcimoto-pulse/) and it’s a little different from from your run of the mill Tesla Roadster. Licensed as an electric motorcycle (http://electrovelocity.com/tag/electric-motorcycles/) due to its 3-wheel configuration the Pulse has a top speed of 65 miles per hour and uses lead-acid batteries rather than the more commonplace lithium-ion, the use of the cheaper lead acid batteries is going a long way towards keeping the cost down to an estimated $17,500 USD however the range is limited to just 40 miles per charge.

very cool :)
The 160 miles per charge sounds exciting.

Don't forget he played Captain Hammer in Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

I saw the Pulse firsthand at a Mall near here a few months back. Very nice looking. I didn't sign up for one due to funds, but I'd definitely consider it.
