Premiering at this year’s 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, a 10.1-inch touchpad where occupants can view scorecard, 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 an 8 kW (11 metric 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 up to 50 km (31 mi).
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 (69 km/h), however, in the US it will be restricted to 25 mph (40 km/h) 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-inch diamond-cut aluminum rims.
The carbon fibre body panels are produced in Germany by Mansory.
