Wheego Electric Cars, a U.S. manufacturer that's often overshadowed by the likes of Nissan, Chevrolet and others, will roll out its highway-capable electric car, the Wheego Whip LiFe, at the Los Angeles Auto Show on November 18th. Wheego calls the LiFe "the nation's first affordable electric car" and for good reason. You see, the LiFe is priced at $32,995 – or, $25,495 after the feds throw in a $7,500 tax credit – which is nearly as cheap as the Leaf, but the LiFe should beat Nissan's battery-powered vehicle to market by at least a month. Provided that no further delays crop up.
Production of the Wheego LiFe is underway and some of the highway-capable EVs will be delivered to dealers by month's end. LiFe reservation holders are eagerly awaiting delivery, which is scheduled to start before the vehicle's on stage debut in LA. Hit the jump for more on the Wheego LiFe; a highway-capable EV from a U.S. manufacturer (made from 75 percent U.S. content – details here) that's ready to challenge some of the big boys in the automotive market.
