Dear Wheego Enthusiast:


Please join us in welcoming Wheego of Atlanta to the team!  Adam Merlin, owner of the new Wheego dealership, will represent the full line of Wheego all-electric vehicles.  “We now offer the low-speed Whip and the highway-ready LiFe, both plug-in EVs,” announced Merlin. “We’ll also offer the 5-passenger Wheego when it is available. We’re eager to represent Wheego and to be a part of Atlanta’s growing environmental movement.”
“We’re excited to add the Wheego line to Adam Merlin’s beautiful 40-car showroom,” announced Wheego National Sales Manager Ken Wambold. “Wheego of Atlanta has a great location – just two miles north of the perimeter off Peachtree Industrial Boulevard. That is a premier location for car buying enthusiasts, and we will be well represented with Wheego of Atlanta.”

Our Missouri dealer is airing a new commercial:

Sierra Club Launches EV Campaign
Visit the Sierra Club website to learn about their new EV campaign: “Automobiles, above all else, represent America's addiction to dirty oil. Plug-in electric vehicles (EVs), which require no gasoline and emit no pollution from their tailpipes, present a critical opportunity to slash pollution, reduce our dependence on oil, create American jobs, and improve national security. To drive this change, the Sierra Club has launched a national campaign to promote electric vehicles—just as new EV models are hitting the roads.”

Charging Your Wheego

The Wheego LiFe uses the industry-standard J1772 charging interface. The LiFe comes standard with a 120V “travel cord” for Level 1 charging. One end of the cord plugs into the J1772 receptacle on the car, and other end plugs into a standard outlet in your garage, workplace, hotel, etc. If you are only driving 30 or 40 miles a day, this may be all you need. The LiFe goes about 100 miles on a charge. If you are driving the full 100 miles each day, you’ll want to get a “Level 2,” or 240V charging system. It takes over 20 hours to recharge a depleted battery if you’re using 120v (Level 1). With a Level 2 system, you can fully recharge overnight (about 10 hours for a complete charge, or 5 hours to go from 50% to 100%). You can still carry the 120V cord with you to recharge on the go, or you can use any of the J1772 Level 2 public charging stations that are being installed across the country.
Wheego has added the Leviton Charging Stations to our approved list of Level 2 charging stations. Leviton makes a range of Level 2 charging stations for indoor and outdoor use, including a model with a 220V plug on the end rather than being hardwired. This means you can install their pre-wire kit in your garage at home and take the unit with you when you move. We’ve tested the Leviton charging station and give it two thumbs up!
Other Wheego-approved models include Clipper Creek, GE, and Ecotality.
