Wheego Electric Cars Spotlighted in Hawaii
HONOLULU - Hawaii Green Energy Outlet, a business that markets green building and energy products, on Aug. 14 demonstrated two upcoming all-electric vehicles manufactured by Wheego Electric Cars, the Honolulu Star Advertiser reported.
The Wheego LiFe travels about 100 miles on a charge and retails for $32,995. The car also qualifies for a $7,500 federal tax credit.
The Wheego LiFe's 115V lithium battery pack can be charged from a standard 120V outlet, a 240V outlet or any of the J1772-standard charging stations being installed in public locations throughout the U.S. It is available in red, white, blue, black, silver and green.
Hawaii will be among the first markets for the LiFe, which is set to ship in September.
The Wheego Whip LiFe is a two-seat subcompact car that can reach speeds of 35 mph and travels about 40 miles on a single charge. It retails for $18,995.
The cars are available for test drives and pre-orders.
A J1772-standard charging station, manufactured by Coulomb Technologies, was also unveiled last week at Green Energy Outlet's location in Kakaako.
Wheego Electric Cars, headquartered in Atlanta, is led by CEO Mike McQuary. The cars are assembled in Ontario, Calif.
