Here Wheego! — Cars Coming to Your

Wheego Electric Car

As many of our know, Mapawatt’s headquarters is Atlanta, Georgia.  When people think of renewable they think of clean-tech like California, Oregon, etc.  This is why I was thrilled to another great clean startup based in Atlanta.

Electric Cars provides Low Vehicles (LSV), Medium Vehicles (MSEV) and will provide highway speed vehicles through a nationwide network.  Michael McQuary, one of the of MindSpring in Atlanta is the Chairman and

The National Highway Traffic Administration (NHTSA ) recognizes the LSV of vehicles and several states laws allowing for LSV vehicles on with speed limits as 35mph or less.  By definition, the LSV be able to achieve at least not to exceed 25mph and must federal motor vehicle requirements such as headlights, lights, turn signals, belts, etc.  Most also require vehicle

  As you can imagine, the LSV has limited use for most unless you live in a community has access to most venues a road system with a speed limit.  However, the LSV can serve these consumers as a vehicle.

Six states have enhanced legislation for medium vehicles (MSV/MSEV) that the maximum speed to 35mph and a safety cage or hard-shelled They still can only be on roads with a 35mph limit.  Since the Wheego LSV is at 25mph, the same vehicle can be to travel at 35mph.

This Wheego will be releasing a new car will travel at highway and have a range of 100 miles.  announced the Wheego Whip at the Auto Show in Washington, DC at the end of Unlike the previous Whips, the has a 65mph top speed and uses a Lithium Iron Phosphate battery pack and management provided by Flux Power in The LiFe will undergo testing and be available later year at a price point $35,000

Tax Incentives?

The Wheego Whip LSV for a 10% federal tax credit that having the buyer pay the full of the vehicle and then file for a tax at the end of the year of 10% of the cost of the vehicle up to a maximum credit.  Some have additional tax breaks for but they vary by state.  The incentives for a highway speed are more complex but provide a larger incentive for purchasing an vehicle.

  It varies depending on the of the battery storage system.

electric vehicles will a $2,500 tax credit plus if the battery pack is at least Owners will also an additional $417 for each of storage over 5kWh.  the complete tax credit may not exceed If we do the math on the Wheego Whip for federal tax credits, the storage is well within the range to for the complete $7,500 tax credit. EV with at least 16kWh of will qualify for the full tax credit)

Some states also additional tax incentives to encourage to purchase highway speed I will be providing a guide in an post that will you navigate state and federal tax for electric vehicles.

If you live in a that is self-contained with a road system, the LSV may make a second car for you.  An example of a community is a small town or community that has all of the amenities within the range of an electric LSV as shopping, grocery stores, entertainment, recreation, etc.

If you live in a city with traffic and congestion, have to amenities within the range of an and the roads have a 35mph limit, I would recommend you hold out for a MSV since it will you more protection in an accident and be able to travel at the maximum speed limit.  However, forget that your also has to allow for LSV and MSVs you can register your car and travel on the

For the rest of us, I’m looking to all of the highway speed electric that are scheduled to be released year.  Between the Wheego LiFe and the Nissan Leaf. all have some great for a functional second vehicle runs on electricity!
