Wheego Debuts the LiFe at the Washington Auto Show
In brief: Wheego unveiled the LiFe, the company's first highway-ready, full speed electric car. It's an upgrade on the company's neighborhood electric Whip.
Vehicle in the news
The car is planned for market later this year at a price of only $35,000 before incentives and tax credits. It will be available at all 30 North American dealerships.
The name, LiFe, comes from the lithium-ion iron phosphate batteries (LiFePO4), of which it has 28kWh worth. The car is undergoing crash testing for federal approval.
The Wheego Whip, the low-speed, neighborhood model, has been available since October and has sold about 200 units so far.
And so ...
Wheego's future plans are to develop a 4-seat version of the LiFe for 2011.
