Skip to comments.Wheego to deliver first electric car on Earth Day
Posted on 04/17/2011 8:58:03 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
The first owners of a Wheego LiFe will be Asma and Kevin Henry, residents of the Virginia Highland neighborhood in Atlanta.
Kevin says buying a Wheego LiFe was his wifes 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.

I’ve seen 2 Wheegos in Manhattan on occasion. They aren’t on the market yet?
This rates a huge BRAVO FOXTROT DELTA.
Does it come with Bag Racks?
A $33,000 tin can coffin.
I am just a itchin' to ask this dolt if she any idea where the electricity comes from to charge her dream car? Maybe she has figured out a way to hook her Nordic Track to a small generator and walk her way to her next shopping trip to buy the meat that magically appears from the meat factories.
There's another problem on the road...You see one of these death traps and you slow down and stay away....because you know you're the one who is going to get their pants' sued off.
You couldn't pay me to own one of those...
The vehicle might be zero emissions, but what about that antiquated electric plant that’s generating the power for the charge? And then, what to do with the power packs when the car is done? WHAT A BUNCH OF NONSENSE!
They should name it “Unicorn” and say it is powered by dreams to sell them.
Would be willing to bet she doesn’t eat meat
“The Wheego LiFe is a two-seat subcompact car with fit, finish and features designed for todays environmentally-conscious commuters.”
Recycled cardboard dash, wicker seats, built-in bong.
1. Only in a fat, bloated, stupid country could you have anybody with a job like asma has. It creates no wealth for anybody, just part of the leech class.
2. Obama... “is asking for a major increase in fuel economy for 2017-2025 model year automobiles.”
My 2011 F250 Superduty. I was hanging out, chatting it up with a friend. I leaned against the right rear quadrant of the the bed... Created a dent... That’s right a dent! Because they are trying to meet Federal gas mileage targets. I have owned a 1999 Superduty, a 2003 F150, and a 2005 F150. The 2005 F150 had the same thin skin. Sneeze on the tailgate and you must replace it. The skin on these trucks are so thin I can’t imagine making it any thinner. The fing village needs to go away. I don’t want trucks that flimsy. My 99 F250 was still a real truck. So IS the 2003.
20 hp...MAX speed....65.....
Only during the every other day brown outs.
Translation = Makes a pretty good living off other peoples misery and then other people's generosity. Working for a NGO or Non Profit is the latest greatest. The neighborhood I live in has six women on my street who operate some form of non profit corporation for Aging with dignity, Youth Rescue Agency, Greener Communities Group, Building a Bridge Corps, Living in Harmony Inc, etc..... It must be lucrative because they don't do much of anything and live like queens. It also seems to be more common in same sex couples as an enterprise.
Electric cars reducing fossil fuel consumption is a ruse. These little electric toy cars have to be recharged very frequently. Unless the source of that electricity is provided by nuclear power or windmills, then it still requires fossil fuels to make them run.
But never let a “greenie” argument get in the way of the facts when you have an agenda to push.
Don't you know? It's the chinese drywall. This causes a reaction between steel nails and wood which generates electricity inside the wall.
Chinese drywall, because you can't get something from nothing.
Oops, it should read “But never let the FACTS get in the way of a greenie argument when you have an agenda to push”
“Wheego” sounds like a toy company. Is coincidence excluded??
At used car lot on the edge of town..a liberal guy and a liberal gal...buy a wheego...
Running over an armadillo would TOTAL that little tin can toy.
And they want $30,000+ for that impractical little piece of crap? “Seats two uncomfortably and has enough trunk space for your laptop and your lunch”
I can just hear their slogan......”Wheegos wobble but they don’t fall down..........”
Thanks for the translation!
Combined with some sort of link of TB with fossil fuels. As far as beathing easier, I’m sure she really has a fun time drying clothes on a line in Atlanta in August while keeping the fresh air flowing through the house.
I remember setting on the grid at Road Atlanta on a Memorial Day weekend, before Globull Whining was the craze, sweat pouring like running water. I thought about the time of day (early afternoon) and errantly thought the sea breeze would be along soon. Then reality surfaced as I realized where I was.
I’d have to strap a mature Ash tree trunk on both sides of the vehicle just to get that “big car ride”. heh heh
And they want $30,000+ for that impractical little piece of crap? Seats two uncomfortably and has enough trunk space for your laptop and your lunch
Yep, and more than likely we are helping this wretch pay for it with our tax dollars. (rebates)
My old Nissan Maxima weighed only about 180 pounds more, held four six footers, had a good size trunk, did 30 mpg on the highway, and got away from traffic lights like a scalded cat.
Auto design has definitely regressed in the last decade, mostly because of the safety nazis and helicopter parents who want Nerf-coated armor plate and airbags everywhere in your car.
I hear you loud and clear.
I’m listening to that as I found your post. Great minds.....:~)
Careful...sick minds too...
I never resist a chance to pull up on my Motorcycle acting all interested and curious...lloking down into their little car..
The libtard driver never fails to start beaming in pride...
Until I tell them I wouldnt drive one as I’d be afraid to get run over by a motorcycle...I’m not suicidal...then ride off shaking my head...
You should see the look on their face...
Priceless...always makes my day...
Your non-air conditioned neck of the woods outside of Atlanta must smell like Eau de Armpit in July Asma??!! ROFL Asma, seriously? What do you really do besides foul up my air when you exhale?
I hope Asthma has taken out a very good life insurance policy with that death trap.
I guess someone else can breath the emissions from that coal fired plant generating the electric for it.
These people are such fake, phony, frauds.
My baby...big red...
“You may have witnessed the smart car:”
No, but I tripped over one once and tipped it over. LOL
“Check out the specs. The Big Wheel Wheego weighs almost 2700 pounds.
My old Nissan Maxima weighed only about 180 pounds more, “
Those batteries have to weigh something.
Wasn’t “Earth Day” a fake leftist holiday invented to continue a Soviet holiday, on the same day, under an American name?
We unicorns prefer large, 4-wheel drive pickups. It’s them stupid forest fairies who drive Wheegos.
For some reason a june bug splattered on the front grill of a Kenworth comes to mind.........
67% of Georgia’s power comes from coal plants
10% from oil and gas plants
= 77% eco unfriendly
2% hydro power
I’m thinking She probably only uses the hydropower.
The greenies can pay their utility a higher rate so "their" electricity (out of the same wires/substation their neighbors use) is "green". Don't ask; there is no logical answer; just the fact.
Wind is the third component of power produced by the cooperatives. Currently, approximately 80 percent of Black Hills Electric's electricity is generated by coal, the remaining 20 percent is hydropower generated by the Missouri River dams and wind power.
Modern wind power does cost more than power produced by coal or water. The extra cost of wind power is passed directly through to those members who take part in the Prairie WindsEnergy in Motion program. Green tag wind power costs the member an additional $0.80 for each 100 kilowatt-hour block purchased each month.
Green tag wind power is only sold in 100 kilowatt-hour blocks and members may purchase as many blocks as they want. Members purchasing green tag wind blocks must make a one-year commitment to purchase wind energy.
Black Hills Electric Cooperative members purchase more green tag wind power than any other cooperative in South Dakota.
Most, if not all, electric utilities have programs like this. Keeps my bill lower, while still fulfilling the federal mandates for generating more "green, alternative" electicity. At least this way, most of the added costs are passed on directly to the whackos who demanded those mandates in the first place.
