Beyond that, details are decidedly scarce. It's possible that Wheego is working with Scooters India Limited – a company that acquired the rights to build the Italian-designed scooters from Innocenti in the early 1970s – but this is just conjecture.

KLD Technologies' goal of getting solid performing electric vehicles on the road has taken a giant step closer to fruition with the signing on of Rob Ferber as its chief technical officer (CTO). The former Tesla Motors science director was responsible for developing the battery packs that power that company's Roadster and his 20 years of experience in the industry also includes time with AC Propulsion.
