DOT Gives Wheego LiFe Electric Car Temporary Safety Rule Exemption
In order to be sold in the U.S., all passenger cars must pass a long list of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards Regulations, including advanced airbags and electric stability control.
Sometimes, usually in the case of low-volume, low-emission cars, the FMVSSR may grant a temporary exemption to the rules to allow a new car to be sold without complete compliance with the rules.
Earlier today, we learned that Wheego Electric Cars, maker of the Wheego Whip LiFe two-seat city car, has been awarded a second temporary exemption to FMVSSR rules after the first ran out on August 1, allowing it to remain on the market until December 31, 2012.
