Wheego LiFe to Debut at L.A. Auto Show

October 19, 2010

ATLANTA - Wheego Electric Cars said it will unveil its Wheego LiFe electric car to the public at the Los Angeles International Auto Show in November. 

"Our highway-ready, full-speed electric car, the Wheego LiFe, is in production now and will be delivered to dealers and drivers in a few weeks," said Wheego President Jeff Boyd. "Our many LiFe reservation holders will receive their cars first. Visitors to the LA Auto Show will be among the first to see the LiFe in person, and we think they will be delighted and intrigued with the LiFe's spacious interior, standard equipment and overall design." 

Boyd and Wheego CEO Mike McQuary will present the new Wheego LiFe at a press conference Nov. 18 during the Los Angeles Auto Show's media-only days (1:40 p.m., Booth # K-500). Attendees can check out the Wheego LiFe and meet the Wheego team during the show's Nov. 19-28 public days. Wheego will be featured in the show's new EV exhibit area in Kentia Hall. 

The full-speed Wheego LiFe travels approximately 100 miles on a single charge and retails for $32,995. It qualifies for a $7,500 federal tax credit, as well as many state tax incentives, including $5,000 in California. 

The Wheego LiFe comes fully equipped with driver and passenger airbags, anti-lock brakes, air conditioning, and power windows and locks. The 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 United States. It is available in red, white, blue, black, silver and green.
