Club Car, the industry-leading manufacturer of small-wheel, zero emissions vehicles, has introduced lithium-ion battery technology to its versatile Carryall range, creating its most efficient utility vehicle yet.

Lithium-ion power has been available in Club Car’s Tempo golf cars since 2019; now it is also an option for the Carryall 500, 502, 550 and 700 models, widely used in golf course maintenance, hospitality and industry.

The automotive-quality technology offers unrivalled efficiency, reliability and safety, requiring zero maintenance which saves valuable resources and labour time.

Marco Natale, Club Car Vice-President EMEA, said: “This addition to our line-up underlines Club Car’s commitment to delivering sustainable solutions and unrivalled performance.

“The lithium-ion Carryalls bring immediate operational savings. We have always listened to what our customers want, and yet again we have delivered a product that meets their needs.”

Lithium-ion batteries charge up to 40% faster than lead acid batteries, and have automated off-peak charging for lower energy costs.

They also have a 10-year lifespan and do not degrade over time, so they give consistent range performance year after year.

A lithium-ion powered Carryall is around 180kg lighter than equivalent lead acid-powered vehicles, allowing for smoother operation over manicured terrain and less turf damage.

It also boasts increased power, with best-in-class hill-climbing capabilities, a higher top speed of 19mph and consistent power output regardless of the battery’s state of charge.

All other benefits and features of the rugged, reliable Carryall models remain the same, including rust-proof aircraft-grade frame, chassis, superior ergonomics – all of which help the cars meet or exceed the strictest safety standards.

Club Car supplies many of the world’s leading golf destinations with its wide range of vehicles, and is an official supplier to the DP World Tour, the 2023 Ryder Cup, the Professional Golfers’ Association (PGA) and St Andrews Links Trust.
