Dear Wheego Enthusiast:
Wheego is ready to "GO!"
We have received the official “go-ahead” to begin shipping cars to our dealers on April 1st. For those of you on the Wheego LiFe reservation list, your car is being assembled as we speak. We will be in touch with you over the next few weeks to firm up your delivery date.
Our low-speed Wheego Whip comes in red, white, blue, silver and black. The Wheego LiFe full-speed EV comes in those same colors, as well as our new dark green
The LiFe has a newly designed instrument panel:
The new digital instrument panel provides constant feedback as to your state of charge, remaining miles on charge, and how efficiently you are driving.
The LiFe also has three driving modes that you can choose from. The “Econo Mode” lets you drive in the most energy-efficient manner, the “Sport Mode” offers quicker acceleration, and the "Drive Mode" offers standard operating performance.
A quick recap of the pricing for the Wheego LiFe:
: $32,995. Qualifies for a $7500 Federal Tax Credit, plus many state tax credits
Please see your dealer for additional tax/tag/title charges.
Optional Air conditioning
: Comes standard with a 36 month/36,000 mile warranty (parts & labor) on the car, and a 48 month/60,000 mile warranty (parts & labor) on the battery pack. An optional extended warranty
is available for $1,995 that provides an additional 24 month/40,000 mile warranty on the battery pack.
Optional Charging Station
: We will send you home with a “travel cord” that will allow you to charge from any standard 110V/120V household outlet. If you are only driving 20 or 30 miles a day, this may be all you’ll need; you can easily recharge your car overnight in your garage. If, however, you will be driving your LiFe more than 50 miles a day, you’ll probably want to invest in a 220V/240V home charging station. Our car can be charged from any of the industry-standard charging stations that have a J1772 connector on the end:
We are working with Aerovironment to offer our customers a complete home-charging solution. The unit is available for $995 plus installation from our dealers.
An Aerovironment representative will come to your home and perform a site assessment to estimate the installation charges. Most home installations will cost around $1,200. That includes the site visit, pulling local building permits, and coming back out to perform the installation.
Wheego dealers will have the Wheego LiFe in their showrooms beginning in April. Visit our current dealer listing
to find a dealer near you and schedule a test drive.

Q:I’ve heard about a proposal to turn the $7500 tax credit for EVs into a $7500 rebate. What is the difference?
A: Senator Deborah Stabenow, D-Mich., has recently proposed legislation that would give electric car buyers an immediate $7,500 rebate instead of making them wait until they file their following-year tax return to claim a tax credit. The details are not completely clear, but this could mean immediate money back for everyone who purchases an electric car, not just those who have a tax liability. Some car dealers are worried that they will be put in a position to arbitrate who is eligible for the rebate, so hopefully if passed this bill would be all encompassing for individuals and easy to administer for dealers.
