Tiny Wheego Gets Big Jump on the ElectricCar Competition CBS News

Tiny Wheego Gets Big Jump on the Electric-Car Competition Last Updated Mar 3, 2010 2:03 PM EST Can an electric vehicle startup with just five employees find success in the cash-intensive, cutthroat automotive world? Maybe, if the five people have deep business experience, a savvy marketing sense and a compelling product. And that just might be the case with Atlanta-based Wheego . which will get a highway-capable electric car on the road as early as June, ahead of Fisker . Coda . Think, GM and Nissan . If the two-seat lithium-ion battery car passes crash tests, it will be on sale for approximately $32,000 at (the company hopes) 50 dealerships across the country. I was the first journalist ...

The Weird Launch of the Wheego Electric Car Tech News and Analysis

1 Comment I was going to title this post, “How Not to Launch an Electric Car,” but I thought that might be too harsh. Still, the launch of the two-seater LiFe electric car by the startup Wheego (meant to convey the fun of Whee! and the action of Go!) at the L.A. Auto Show last week was, let’s just say, pretty unusual. Wheego CEO Michael McQuary, former President of the ISP Earthlink, kicked off the official unveiling of the Wheego LiFe with a sort-of stand-up comedy routine, beginning with a joke about thanking auto startup CODA’s former CEO and VP of Global Sales for attending (the awkward joke is they left CODA earlier this month ), and later asking the press audience if they wanted ...

Review 2009 WheeGo Whip NEV Challenge To Smart ForTwo?

Review: 2009 WheeGo Whip NEV — Challenge To Smart ForTwo? 2009 WheeGo Whip NEV So why is TheCarConnection.com (emphasis on CAR) reviewing a neighborhood electric vehicle? Valid question. Answer: Because WheeGo has told us that their 2009 Whip NEV will make the transition into a fully highway capable model sometime next year, so this could be an up-and-coming competitor to the 2009 smart fortwo. Our test drive opportunity gave us a look into whether the Whip genuinely is a real car, or some  third-world excuse that’s only refined enough for drivers who are used to steering an ox cart with a switch. First, here’s what we drove: nearly production ready 2009 Whip NEV and an ...

Difference between level 1 2 3 in electric car battery life …

What is the difference between level 1, 2, and 3 electric car plug in chargers? Long story short, level 1 is 110 volts like your common household outlet.  Level 2 is 240 volts which is what most home electric dryer run off but is usually only available in a few outlets in your home.  Level 3 is 480-500 volts and is not wired in households and is not yet standardized. The Nissan Leaf s fast charger is a special level 2 box that is wired to your garage and can fully charge the 24 kWh battery pack in about 8 hours.  In reality, most people won t drain the useful life of the battery fully so they ll really only use it a few hours at a time to top off the battery pack. There is a dark side ...
