ATLANTA, June 7, 2012 – WHEEGO ELECTRIC CARS, a U.S.manufacturer of all-electric cars, today announced that they have been named a distributor for GE Energy’s line of WattStation Wall Mount electric vehicle (EV) charging stations. Wheego will distribute the Level 2 GE WattStation Wall Mount EV charging units at select Wheego dealerships nationwide.

“GE is a trusted brand, and we are happy to be able to offer the WattStation EV charging product line to our drivers,” said Wheego CEO Mike McQuary. “While EV charging stations are a relatively new business, GE Energy’s Industrial Solutions business brings more than 130 years of experience in designing and manufacturing reliable electrical distribution products. GE has an excellent track record with the WattStation product line. I know they will deliver a top quality EV charging station to our drivers and fleet managers.”

The GE WattStation Wall Mount charges the Wheego 30kWh battery pack from 50 percent to a complete charge in approximately 4.5 hours. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor installations, the GE WattStation Wall Mount is NEMA 3R, rated to resist rain, sleet and even ice. Operating on a 208-240V AC circuit, the WattStation Wall Mount can be installed in new or existing construction, and can either be hardwired for more permanent installations or plugged into a NEMA 6-50 receptacle for simple removal. 

Wheego dealers, through the GE EV Certified Installer program, can also tap into GE’s network of service installation providers for assistance in making their customer’s EV charging solution a reality at home or place of business.

The WheegoLiFe comes fully equipped with driver and passenger airbags, anti-lock brakes, power windows and locks, and optional air conditioning. The LiFe travels approximately 100 miles on a single charge, and can be recharged from any 100V outlet, or from a J1772-compliant charging station such as the GE WattStation. It is available in red, white, blue, black, silver, and green. A two-seat subcompact car, the WheegoLiFe’sfit, finish and features are designed for today’s environmentally conscious commuters.
