Hawaii welcomed the electric car movement this week, as the Hawaii Green Energy Outlet unveiled the Wheego Whip LiFe.
Billed as “the first high-voltage electric car that supports the 240V international charging standard,” the Wheego LiFe is a two-passenger vehicle that tops out at 65 mph. An article in the Honolulu Star-Advertiser said “Hawaii will be among the first in the nation to receive the LiFe when it ships in September.”
The Whip LiFe measures just under 10 feet long and weighs 2,667 pounds. It employs AC brushless motors and peaks at 60 HP and 95 ft-lb of torque. It retails for $32,995.
Coulomb Technologies showed off charging stations for the LiFe that reportedly can recharge its battery in two hours at 240 V and 80 A.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
