We are the exclusive Wheego dealer in Northern California. The Wheego Whip is classified as a Low Speed Vehicle (LSV) by NHTSA, with a top speed of 35 MPH (or 25 MPH depending on State laws) and a range of 40 miles. It can easily charge using a regular household power plug of 110/120 volts, and it takes 8-10 hours to fully charge. Charging times can be shortened by using a 220/240 volts, plus it has the option of using dual chargers that cuts the charging time to around 5 hours. It uses a sealed glass mat lead-acid battery pack. The electric motor is a 3 phase induction AC type, so it does not require any maintenance, and provides a flat torque curve of 110 lbs-ft and 40 peak horsepower. The Wheego Whip is nicely equipped with power windows, power locks with remote keyless entry, power mirrors, leather-wrapped steering wheel, reclining bucket seats trimmed in cloth, driver's seat has a 6-way adjuster, a JVC sound system with CD/MP3 player, a USB port and optional Bluetooth interface, fog lamps, 15" alloy wheels, power front disc/rear drum brakes, body color folding side mirrors with built-in turn signals, deep tinted rear quarter glass, 2-way tailgate, and much more! It has a ventilation system with heater, and a optional air conditioner. Other options include a external spare tire carrier, and the 220 volt power cord. The Wheego electricar car company is headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia. The final assembly takes place in Ontario, California. Since this car has 51% USA content, it qualifies for Federal tax credits, and certain State tax credits and/or incentives. Late this summer Wheego is expected to offer the high-speed version called the LiFE. The LiFE model will feature Lithium-ion batteries, a top speed of 65 MPH, and a estimated range of 100 miles. The Wheego Whip LSV is available now at Ellis Brooks Auto Center in San Francisco. For additional information please visit our website at www.ellisbrooks.com.
