Dear Wheego Enthusiast:
Choice Automotive joins ABC Auto to represent Wheego in Hawaii. Choice Automotive is located on King Street in Honolulu, and ABC Auto’s showroom is in Waipahu.
Hawaii has embraced electric vehicles
, offering free use of the HOV lane and free parking across the islands. We are happy to have both Choice Automotive and ABC Auto on board, and look forward to adding additional Wheego dealerships in Hawaii!
100,000 EVs On The Road in the US!
Plug In America has been busy tracking electric vehicle sales, and announced in July
that we have surpassed the 100,000th
EV sold in the U.S. Plug in America awarded the lucky driver a new charging station from Clipper Creek. Next up from Plug In America: an EV photography contest. Send in pictures of your Wheego for a chance to win a Plug In EV basket of goods. Visit the Plug in America facebook page
Clipper Creek Charging Station pricing lowered
Clipper Creek, manufacturer of EV charging stations, has lowered their pricing and expanded their product line. Clipper Creek makes the 120v “travel cord” that Wheego sells with each car. They also offer a line of Level 2 (220v) charging stations that are approved for use with the Wheego Life. The retail price on the LCS-25 was just reduced from $795 to $595.
Clipper Creek is also now offering a plug-in version of their Level 2 charging station – the unit plugs into a 220v outlet rather than having to be hardwired. For more information, visit the Clipper Creek website
Wheego’s Movie Debut
Look for the Wheego Whip in the movie “21 and Over
”. The Whip transports way too many college students after a long night of shenanigans. We are waiting for the invitation to imprint the Wheego tire tracks on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Retailers Get Charged Up
IKEA announced last month that it is adding additional charging stations to stores across the country. According to the Electric Drive Transportation Association, other major retail companies that have either set up EV charging for their customers or are planning it include Macy’s, Walgreens, Whole Foods, Kroger, Tim Hortons,
7-Eleven, Cracker Barrel, Best Buy and Chili’s, as well as several major hotel chains. Read more about this positive trend in this New York Times article
