Wheego Whip LiFe EV
http://ev.com/wheego-whip-life-ev/
The two-seat compact Wheego Whip LiFe EV is known in the rest of the world as the Chinese made E-Noble.

Why doesn’t try and get more Wheego Whip dealers outside the USA?

Ford announced a car that gets a 21 mile electric only range from 6 hours of being in the sun.  For more details, see the article in the MIT Technology Review ►
goo.gl/EdzP0J.  :)

Half the people don't drive more than 20 miles each day usually, so they won't need to charge the car the traditional way of the electric plug (even if they can).  If they will put transparent panels on the entire car body and windows, they will easily add 75 miles electric only in the future to all car models with improving technology.  

This tech would be very useful even in cloudy nations.  This chart shows how Germany is much cloudier and smaller than USA, yet produces more solar power ► https://joinmosaic.com/sites/default/files/u2235/solar-irradiance-map.png

Here are some news that could motivate some to install solar on the roof and buy solar-electric car next time:

☼ on Dec 19 France approved taxing fossil fuels to speed up renewable deployment ►  goo.gl/6J3eXC ( In October France has made its natural gas fracking ban absolute, in a victory for supporters of solar ► http://thinkprogress.org/climate/2013/10/11/2773071/france-frack-ban/.  Fracking causes small earthquakes, poisons ground water and air and makes millions of people sick ► Fracking Loophole Linked To Pollution Of Drinking Water)

☼  In US 100% of new electric power in November came from renewables (99% in October) ► goo.gl/LgYa2h
☼  50% electricity from wind in Iowa will be real sooner due to $1 billion turbine December ordergoo.gl/uJ4bdY
☼ In Norway 12% of new cars sold in November were electricgoo.gl/3gZQtK
☼ China got 53% new electric power capacity in the first 10 months of 2013 from renewablesgoo.gl/UIUptq.  

The GERMAN SOLAR CAPACITY INCREASED 16,000 TIMES FROM 1991 TO 2012goo.gl/qulHp. On 05-26-12 GERMANY PRODUCED 50% ELECTRICITY FROM SOLARgoo.gl/Lu80c.  If Germany can do it with just 60 sunny days a year and very cold winters, most countries can do it too as they got at least as much sunlight.:)

 In Scotland 100% renewable energy by 2025 is the goal ► 
http://ecolocalizer.com/2010/09/29/scotland-aiming-for-100-clean-energy-by-2025/.  Tasmania has set a 100% renewable energy in 2020 goal ► goo.gl/3VfHOV.  The Philippines has a 100% renewable energy in 10 years target ►  goo.gl/bZoeh.

In September-October the top selling car in Norway has been an electric model, in September the Tesla Model S, in October the Nissan Leaf ► goo.gl/GqjLMY.  Kia EV will have 120 miles range ► goo.gl/Tqz3U8.  For a few months, South Korea has already used roads to charge electric cars ► goo.gl/12IgSG.  US electric car sales increased 360% in 2013 compared to 2012goo.gl/uLc5yV

With an income per capita lower than China or Russia and 7 times lower than United States - Bhutan plans as of November 2013 to shift all cars of its capital to electric Nissan Leafs and other modelsgoo.gl/Iql06c.    Countries richer than Bhutan could aim to switch most big cities to electric cars.  China decided in November that 40% of new cars in Beijing will be hybrids or electric by 2017goo.gl/U7cjEe.  In Europe they are testing a bus that can charge in 15 seconds ► goo.gl/9OT75.  


reasons for buying your next car electric:

1.  help humanity since you no longer generate carcinogenic exhaust, otherwise known as smog, which kills millions of people each year ► goo.gl/jDj0hI and leads to lower IQ ► goo.gl/alNQIk and autism ► goo.gl/66nqwr.  Oil smog speeds up the arrival of all the main diseases ► http://www.ehhi.org/reports/exhaust/summary.shtml.

2.  save lives since you reduce heart attacks caused by traffic noise ►  goo.gl/Fuhvn.   Electric cars are much quieter, so you will be safer and protect your ears. Enjoy listening to music without damaging your ears.

3.   save humanity from oil wars that destroy the environment and kill countless civilians.  Iraq war trillions could have powered all US with solar/wind ► goo.gl/ZqN47.  

4.  you no longer have to change oil or spark plugs; no more smog check either; electric cars have 60% less parts, so you will go for repairs much less.

5.  bring the end of gas stations that poison the water wells with MTBE or other compounds leading to billions of dollars wasted in cleaning up the well water (example:  $0.4 billion settlement ► goo.gl/eKasZD)

6.  save money as you spend 4 times less money on fuel, since electricity is 4 times cheaper than gasoline as a fuel.  If you have enough solar panels,  you get free CLEAN fuel for life, since you charge at home and utilities pay you for energy you put on the grid.  Likewise, Tesla Motors offers free solar ☼ charging for lifeTesla Motors Supercharger Event?  

7. 100% electricity from renewable sources is a reality in many areas of the planet and the more we demand electric cars, the faster we shift towards clean energy and away from fossil fuels. The sun can power the whole world with clean energy ►   https://plus.google.com/110265788529286523789/posts/R7ddJPExiz5.    On October 3rd 2013, Germany produced 60% of energy from solar and wind ► goo.gl/AS2zuj.    

8.  save money for noble purposes because electric cars are cheaper than many oil cars after the federal and state rebates:  in Colorado, you can buy a Nissan Leaf for only 15, 000, while in most other states for 18-21, 000.  A Smart EV costs only $12, 500 in California, see smartusa.com.  Mitsubishi i-MieV is only $13, 000 in California and $9,500 in Colorado ► http://www.evworld.com/news.cfm?rssid=31881

9.  electric car batteries and solar panels are far greener than alternatives.  Battery recycling for today's oil car lead batteries is happening at a 97% rate globally. It will be even better for the far safer lithium car batteries.   Lithium Ion batteries are classified by the federal government as non-hazardous waste.  Lithium ion batteries are made from nontoxic lithium carbonate (used in ovenware), nontoxic cobalt oxide (in pottery glaze), nontoxic graphite (in pencils), and a polymer (plastic) membrane. The most toxic components are the electrolyte and lithium cobalt oxide, neither of which are persistent in the environment and both of which are increasingly being replaced by safer compounds.  Wang Chuan-Fu, CEO of BYD, demonstrated the safety of the electrolyte in their lithium ion batteries by drinking it. Zero Motorcycles founder Neal Saiki said that the Lithium Ion batteries they use are safe to eat

Solar is way better than coal, oil or natural gas which spew 100-1000 times more carcinogens in the environment per unit of energy produced, besides far more CO2.  How long does a solar panel system have to operate to recover the energy used for making the panel? Energy payback for rooftop panels is 1-4 years depending on type.   Assuming a life of 30 years for a panel, that means that most energy produced will be free from pollution of any sort ► http://www.nrel.gov/docs/fy04osti/35489.pdf.

So it feels like yesterday when i was researching an electric car, namely citroen czero, like some of you, contemplating the leap of faith....

Anyone can find a cheaper Nissan Leaf Acenta 2013 lease, in the UK?

My findings to date...http://c-zero.info/cz/category/why-go-ev-london/cheapest-electriccar-lease/
