First Wheego LiFe High-speed EV Ready for Earth Day Delivery

All-electric car fits lifestyle of customer who walks, bikes and dries her laundry in her backyard.

Published: 18-Apr-2011

Atlanta-headquartered Wheego, manufacturer of all-electric cars, today announced it will deliver the first Wheego LiFe, a highway-speed 100% electric car, on Earth Day- April 22, 2011.

This is big news for the innovative elecric car maker. The first owners of a Wheego LiFe will be Asma and Kevin Henry, residents of the Virginia Highland neighborhood in Atlanta. Jimmy Ellis, VP and COO of Jim Ellis Automotive Dealerships, will present the Henrys with their car at the Jim Ellis dealership at 5855 Peachtree Industrial Blvd, at 10:30a.m.on April 22nd.

Kevin says buying a Wheego LiFe was his wife’s idea. Asma, a freelance consultant in international assistance programs, is committed to protecting the environment and reducing fossil fuel consumption. She walks and bikes to neighborhood shops, prefers fresh air to conditioned air, and dries laundry in the back garden. She has more than a casual interest in zero-emission vehicles and clean air because she helps manage the charity Speranta Terrei, which supports patients in Moldova with the air-borne disease tuberculosis. Asma said, “We as individuals have to do our part so we can all breathe easier.”


Wheego LiFE electric car is base priced at $32,995.
