In technical terms the Golf Car has unique features which even make approval for on-road use possible in the USA. To this end it is equipped with all the necessary features such as direction indicators, headlamps and rear lights.
A double wishbone suspension typical of sports cars ensures comfortable driving characteristics and light, precise handling on all surfaces. This also gives the compact Golf Car (length 2350 millimetres, width 1200 millimetres and height 1720 millimetres) a tight turning circle of 5.2 metres. The Golf Car drives extremely smoothly both on the golf course and on metalled roads.
The electric motor of the Mercedes-Benz Style Edition Garia Golf Car has an output of three kilowatts, but can also make up to eleven kilowatts available for short periods. This is enough to give the 440-kilogram vehicle with its permissible payload of up to 460 kilograms sporty acceleration, with a governed top speed of 30 km/h with a range of up to 80 kilometres. The charging time for the lithium-ion battery is six hours. The vehicle is braked by front disc brakes.
Garia is initially building two driveable examples of the showcar. The reactions of the market and potential customers will be incorporated into any series production. This progressive Golf Car is to be mainly sold via digital channels. Susanne Hahn: “The vehicle can be experienced absolutely virtually. This means that wherever customers are, in a dealership or on a golf course, they can look at the vehicle on a tablet and order it with three clicks.”
