April 26, 2011 / 1 Comment

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.

    The Solyndra case proves that the DOE LOAN and ATVM funding was based on pure bribery and lobby manipulation. All of the failure points on Solyndra have been visible for ages so they would not have gotten the money if “real due diligence” had been performed instead of giving the money away to hard-wired campaign contributors. Kleiner Perkins put Chu in office as Secratary in order to get favored nations funding for their portfolio companies and keep competitors to those portfolio companies from getting funded. Steve Westly and Kholsa helped them along with Raj Gupta.

    The Detroit News writes that Detroit & Telsa recipients used the money to pay bonuses to staff and other uses, have parties and other uses not intended for the funds. How the *H* did a Japanese company get U.S. taxpayer dollars from the DOE?

    The DOE ATVM And Loan Gaurantee programs were conducted by criminals in order to commit crimes. The “Car Czar” Steve Rattner (Now a proven criminal by the State of NY), Lachland Seward, Matt Rogers and his partner Steve Spinner and most of Tesla’s friends at McKinsey Consulting from Silicon Valley (Who used Tax payer jets to fly back and forth to Silicon Valley to go bike riding), Steve Westley and a group who now left DOE, and some who are still there are criminals. They stole your tax money and put in in their friends pockets. Federal investigations have already shown that Detroit embezzeled and misspent the first monies distributed. Every company that has so far gotten money has misspent it, did not have what they said they had at the time they applied, were tied to campaign contributions and rated lowest on the comparison reviews. If you google: “Unprofessional behavior plagues SRS” to read about the death threats, you can see the depths to which some of these people will sink. See the recent mass exodus from DOE of key staff in the last 9 months: They took the money and ran.

    The few applicants that did get money spent tens of millions of dollars on bribes and lobby “incentives” equal in ratio to the money they got. Now the White House says that $17B of the taxpayer money that Detroit got is a write-off and is lost forever. In other words Detroit has already embezzeled more money than all of the other applicants applied for put together.

    Google Tesla’s Siry on “DOE stifles innovation” to read what one of the highest level staff at one of the car companies said.

    The GAO, a federal crime busting agency, just released public reports saying that the DOE Loan programs were corrupt. All of the people under Seward were “connected” or “made men” in the Detroit cadre. Seward changed the section 136 first-come-first serve rule (Which appears to be illegal) in order to provide advantages to his friends in Detroit who didnt bother to apply in time and to cut out the smaller players who were already ahead in the application proces

    Subpeonas of Detroit and DOE Loan Departments will prove crime, corruption, favoritism and rigged contracts were the rule and not the exception. BTW: Revenge of the Electric car is a paid product placement film. It is not a real documentary.
