“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.
OTOH, my '69 VW Beetle weighs in at just over 1,600 pounds empty. Cruises at 75; has 8" clearance, and good traction in mud & snow. It even came stock with wipers/washer, high/low beams, tail lights, bumpers, doors, trunk(!), tires, heater, interior lights, radio.... Those were all things that were listed as (not cheap) EXTRAS on the last electric I laughed at: a GEM E-4, by Chrysler.
I checked it out online, after seeing one of those toys parked next to my Expedition. It was around $18,000...more if the guy had bought the plastic doors, instead of the canvas; and another $4-5,000 if he wanted to be able to 'fast (6-8 hours) charge' it, instead of using the built-in 120V 15 amp slooooow charging system.
For the same or less (not even including the extra $,$$$ charging system) one can get a new Ford Fiesta or even a stripped Focus; either is better equipped, more comfortable, and MUCH safer.
Wonder how much the replacement battery costs.
