Elektrokart: Single-seat golf buggiesMarch, 2012
They look like go-karts, but have a built in golf bag stand behind the driver’s seat
First there were pull trolleys, then golf buggies that took the strain out of pulling or carrying – before finally the invention of the electric trolley.
Now, manufacturers ElectroKart are looking to make the next big splash in the market with their Voyager and Ranger single-seat golf buggies.
The electric vehicles look like go-karts, but have a built in golf bag stand behind the driver’s seat, and are fully collapsible to fit in a car boot.
The karts not only offer a way back into the game to those with health alignments or injuries, they also allow you to complete a round much faster, leaving more free time in the day after your round.
Unlike most electric golf buggies, the ElectroKart models have four wheels instead of three, which makes traversing bumpy fairways very stable.
The Voyager model features a frame constructed from high-quality steel tubing, which is phosphate and epoxy coated to give longer life and all weather protection. These transportable buggies also cost less than you might think, coming in at under half the price of a full size buggy.
The Voyager model features a frame constructed from high-quality steel tubing, which is phosphate and epoxy coated to give longer life and all weather protection.
It also has a bucket-style seat that is ergonomically designed for a comfortable ride, and for the taller user, they offer an extended front end to give more leg room.
Your clubs are vertically mounted in a bag carrier that has been designed to give easy access to your clubs and is secured by two quick release straps.
The steering column also adjusts to give a comfortable driving position and easy, step-on access; while the heavy duty ABS foot-plate has a non-slip, spike-proof rubber mat.
The Ranger model offers the same combination of power, performance and stability. Its new design swivel seat also allows for easy mounting & dismounting.
The slim-line dimensions means the kart can be used indoors, fitting through any standard doorway.
Both karts also have an automatic anti-runaway parking brake, allowing you to park on the steepest of gradients.
Prices: They start from £1,995 for the Voyager and from £2,399 for the Ranger.
