Wheego released their electric vehicle on Earth Day. This eco-friendly car named LiFe is the first highway-speed, all-electric car from Wheego. Strikingly, its name is derived from its Lithium (Li)-Ion (Fe) batteries that it deploys within.
The wheel of LiFe was taken over by proud owners Asma and Kevin Henry, residents of the Virginia Highland neighborhood in Atlanta on the occasion. Wheego, committed in creating automobiles with economical, ecological and fuel sustainability, hopes this will be the first step towards reducing America’s dependency on foreign oil.
LiFe, much of a pride product of the company, had been in the pipeline for more than a year now. The zero emission automobile comes with interesting specs.
The Wheego LiFe can drive upto 100 miles (161 km) on a single charge and is augmented with passenger and driver 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 set up at public locations across the United States.
Wheego LiFe is available in 19 countries and retails for $32,995. Further, it is qualified for a grant $7,500 Federal tax credit. The car is being offered in red, white, blue, black, silver, and green hues.
