Premiering at this year Geneva Motor Show is this “coolest golf car ever”, created by Denmark’s Garia in association with Mercedes-Benz.
One of the unique selling points here is that it looks more car-like (Daimler Smart like?) than a traditional golf cart. The LED headlights give it a distinct look while the grille with its golf ball pattern makes the vehicle’s purpose clear.
The vehicle has Bluetooth enabled integrated hi-fi speakers, 10.1-inch touchpad where occupants can view score card, control functions like drive mode selection, refrigerator On/Off and timer relay, windscreen heating, and wipers with washer function. The genuine leather inside is hand stitched and waterproof.
Powering the golf cart is a 8 kW (11 hp) electric motor drawing power from a 10.24 kWh Lithium-ion battery pack which is claimed to be the largest lithium battery pack ever installed in a serial golf cart. The battery is good for a range of 50 km.
The small rear spoiler acts as a golf bag holder, and is fully integrated into the car’s design. It accommodates two golf bags placed at an angle of 45 degrees.
The Garia Golf Car inspired by Mercedes-Benz Style is street legal and it can accelerate up to 43 mph, however in the US it will be restricted to 25 mph due to federal law. The driving experience is claimed to be the best in class, car like handling with front disk brakes and double wishbone suspensions as well as 14” diamond cut aluminum rims.
The carbon fibre body panels are produced in Germany by Mansory.
