ATLANTA (January 24, 2013) – WHEEGO ELECTRIC CARS, a U.S.manufacturer of all-electric cars, today announced that Green Wheels, LTD will represent the Wheego line of electric vehicles in the Chicago, Illinois area.

 “Wheego has been looking for the right dealer in the Chicago area, and we are confident that Green Wheels is a great fit for us,” announced Wheego National Sales Manager Ken Wambold. “This is a family-owned business which was started in the 1940’s. In addition to a demonstrated expertise in electric vehicles, Green Wheels offers an eco-friendly service solution to gas-powered cars. They pride themselves on a completely green facility: recycling used belts and hoses, using a soy-based alternative to WD 40, and offering an ‘eco-tuning’ service to help get the most energy-efficient operation out of a car. Green Wheels sells solar panels and wind turbines, and offers charging stations powered by solar and wind. We feel our all-electric plug-in car perfectly complements this Ecology-minded dealership.”

Green Wheels is located at 1540 N. Western Avenue in Chicago. The dealership will carry the Wheego LiFe, an all-electric, two-seat subcompact car with fit, finish and features designed for today’s environmentally-conscious commuters. The LiFe comes fully-equipped with driver and passenger airbags, anti-lock brakes, power windows and locks, and optional air conditioning. 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. The LiFe travels approximately 100 miles on a single charge. It is available in red, white, blue, black, silver, and green. Starting at $32,995, the LiFe qualifies for a $7500 Federal tax credit. Illinois also offers a cash rebate of up to 10% of the purchase price,  and reduced registration fees for electric vehicles.  There are also over 200 electric vehicle charging stations in the Chicago area available to the public.
