$3900 New Smart EV Huh?

This place advertises $3900 new smart EVs and $3900 wheego LIFES, anyone in chicago willing to find out how he gets to this price?


I am thinking it isn't fully legit but given the local, state and fed tax break might be possible but only if you live there.

Anyone willing to buy the car cheap, hold for a year and I will buy it, get a free year on me ?

Hm. The picture on that site shows a Wheego Life, not a Smart Fortwo like it shows in the data.

But I bet you can't get a Wheego for that money either.
Wheego was in dire straits but seems to be selling cars till now. Delivering too?
Or is this too good to be true?

2015 Smart Fortwo EV:

2013 Smart Fortwo EV:

Wheego Life;
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.16 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Most people are in the longest queue.

That's gotta be a typo. $13,900, not $3,900. They've marked a bunch of stuff down and somebody got busy, missed a keystroke.

Lead or follow. Either is fine.

Interesting. I agree, it's likely a typo, but that's the first time I've ever heard of the Wheego.
