Golf cart to the fore

One of the latest vehicles to join the Mercedes-Benz range is a premium-class golf car. Developed in conjunction with the brand’s car designers in conjunction with Daimler’s Think & Act Tank Business Innovation Division and well-known golf cart manufacturer Garia, the derivative is said to define a new class of transport for the golf course.

Mercedes-Benz Style Edition Garia Golf Car: Sternstunde auf dem GolfplatzGorden Wagener, Head of Design at Daimler AG, says the model represents a reinvention of the traditional cart. “Mercedes-Benz stands for modern luxury, and golf is an authentic part of that theme. Transferring our automotive design idiom to the Golf Car is therefore something quite natural, and in doing so we have created a product that is both sensual and pure,” he maintains.

Jens Thiemer, Vice President of Marketing for Mercedes-Benz Cars, adds that the vehicle was specifically developed for sporting golfers. “Our communication bears the light-hearted slogan, a real sports car,” he says.

The car, which weighs 440kg, features double wishbone suspension for a comfortable ride. Handling is said to light and precise on all surfaces. Dimensions are compact – a length of 2 350mm, width of 1 200mm and a height of 1 720mm, with a turning circle of 5,2 metres.

Power is supplied by a 3kW electric motor, but the unit can also make up to 11kW available for short periods. The vehicle’s top speed is governed to 30km/h and its range is said to be 80km. Charging time for the lithium-ion battery is six hours.
