New 240-volt electric cars debut in Honolulu

POSTED:



 Hawaii's first 240-volt electric cars are set to debut in Honolulu.

Wheego Hawaii unveiled the two cars at Green Energy Outlet on Saturday.

The low-speed "Whip" will be available for a test drive, as well the "LiFe," which looks exactly like the "Whip" but is a full-speed car that is crash-tested and approved for highways. The LiFe can be ordered at the event.

Both cars support the 240-volt standard announced in January by the Society of Automotive Engineers. Wheego officials say using that voltage cuts charging times by more than half.

The event also unveiled ChargePoint charging stations.
