The story here is not that Wheego Electric Cars opened a dealership in Florida, but rather that the dealership that now sells electric Wheegos in Jacksonville use to sell gas-guzzling Hummers.

Earlier this week, Wheego announced that the Nimnicht Family of Dealerships In Jacksonville, Florida will by the state’s first Wheego dealership.  The Nimicht dealership sold Hummers prior to the demise of fuel-gulping SUVs.

As Wheego states:

“The showroom formerly displayed Hummers, and we think this evolution to a green, eco-friendly product and a new technology will serve the Jacksonville market well. The Nimnicht name is highly respected in Florida, and rightfully so. The Nimnichts are the number one Chevy, Buick and GMC dealer in the greater Jacksonville area, and consistently receive top marks in customer satisfaction surveys.”

Wheego currently offers two electric vehicles in the US: the highway-capable Wheego LiFe and a low-speed vehicle, the Wheego Whip.

We’ll ignore the low-speed Whip, as it’s basically a glorified golf cart.  Instead, we’ll post specs provided by Wheego for the LiFe:

“The Wheego LiFe is an all-electric, two-seat subcompact car with fit, finish and features designed for today’s environmentally-conscious commuters. The LiFe comes fully-equipped with driver and passenger airbags, anti-lock brakes, power windows and locks, and optional air conditioning. The 115V lithium battery pack can be charged from a standard 120V outlet, a 240V outlet or any of the J1772 standard charging stations being installed in public locations throughout the United States. The LiFe travels approximately 100 miles on a single charge. It is available in red, white, blue, black, silver, and green. Starting at $32,995, the LiFe qualifies for a $7500 Federal tax credit.”
Wheego dealerships are few and far between, but if the LiFe interests you, then click here to be whisked away to Wheego’s website.

    I’ll be surprised if they are still in business a year from now… Unless they can start selling used Leafs, Volts, etc..

    Nice to see another Serious EV vehicle on the market. Where in the northeast can i test drive it?

    Um, no one is buying Wheego LiFes. Well, next to no one.

    It does seem that the Smart 4 2 EV is the bigger bargain.
