The Wheego is a small two-seater electric car developed in the U.S., it reaches 105kph and has a 160km range. The first U.S. deliveries took place last week.

The Wheego Life, previously called Wheego Whip is an electrified version of an already well-known Chinese model, following a request initiated by Daimler for violation of industrial property, the Shuanghuan Noble, was approved last January for Europe but only in its gasoline version and that is all the nuance...
