    Although in the context of this comic strip, I think Scott Adams is trying to portray how nerdy the guy is. His admission that he drives an electric car confirms and reinforces his portrayal as a wimpy guy devoid of any sex appeal. Substitute the line, "It's Electric" with "It's a Prius" for similar comic effect. Teslas are the only production vehicles to upend that widely held perception of electric cars.

    Of course in this context, the reversal of the expected to get to a Tesla also provides it's own comic effect.
