Atlanta, Georgia (PRWEB) June 9, 2010
WHEEGO ELECTRIC CARS, manufacturer of all-electric vehicles, today announced it has appointed Good Stuff Auto as its dealer with exclusive rights to sell the Wheego Electric Car product line throughout Marin, Sonoma, Napa, Lake and Mendocino Counties in California.
Good Stuff Auto owners Jim and Barbara Bennett are adding an Electric Boutique to their twenty-year-old dealership. "There is a great deal of interest in Electric Vehicles in our area," says Jim Bennett. "We think the Wheego Whip is a perfect addition to our Electric Boutique. It's reasonably priced, stylish and fun to drive - but with no emissions, no gas and no noise. The Wheego vehicles are assembled in California, so we're also happy about supporting another California business."
Wheego President Jeff Boyd feels Good Stuff Auto is a good fit for the Wheego brand. "Californians have led the way in Electric Vehicle interest and usage," says Boyd. "We anticipate tremendous demand for EVs and are excited to have signed Good Stuff Auto. Jim and Barbara Bennett have a proven twenty-year track record of offering their clients a very personal sales and service experience. Seventy percent of their sales are repeat or referral business. They will take good care of our customers, and we are happy to have them join us."
The Wheego Whip LiFe Full-Speed all-electric car is expected this summer. The Whip LiFe runs on a lithium battery pack, and will go approximately 100 miles on a charge. The retail price on the Wheego Whip LiFe is $32,995; the Whip LiFe qualifies for a $7,500 Federal Tax Credit, and a $5,000 State of California Rebate. The LiFe is anticipated to be the first affordable all-electric car to be widely available in the U.S.
The Wheego Whip LSV (Low-Speed Vehicle) is available now at Good Stuff Auto and other dealers across the country. It runs on sealed lead-acid batteries and qualifies for a 10% Federal Tax Credit in 2010. With a sticker price of $18,995, the Wheego Whip LSV net price is just over $17,000. The Whip LSV is an "around-town" car, with a range of about 40 miles per charge and a maximum speed of 35mph. "The Wheego LSV isn't going to be a family's only car," says Jim Bennett. "But if you commute daily in the LSV and use it for all your local errands, you'll find you are leaving your 'thirsty' car in the garage two-thirds of the time. You're using far less gas, you're extending the life of your bigger car, and you're lessening your carbon footprint. At the end of the summer, we'll have the highway-ready LiFe available here as well. We are inviting everyone to come in and take the LSV for a spin to get a preview for how the full-speed will feel. We'll start taking reservations this month for the full-speed. What's happening in the Gulf of Mexico right now is awakening in people a need to do something positive for the environment, and to begin to move the U.S. toward oil independence and a cleaner future. We are excited about being a part of that positive change."
Both Wheego Whip models are fully-loaded two-seat compact cars with fit, finish and features that compete with any other subcompact car on the market. Features include remote keyless entry, air conditioning, and MP3 stereo system.
