Club Car rolls out personal-transportation vehicle

Augusta, Ga., Jan. 25, 2017 – Club Car™, the world’s largest manufacturer of small-wheeled, zero-emission electric and utility vehicles and a brand of Ingersoll Rand, is expanding its suite of product offerings and will have current and future vehicles on display at booth #2928 at the 2017 PGA Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida from Jan. 25-27.

Club Car will have a variety of vehicles at its booth, including the PRECEDENT®, Transporter XL™, CARRYALL® and Café Express™. Company representatives will be on hand for additional information and media interviews.

Club Car will showcase its extensive portfolio of utility and turf utility vehicles, which highlights Club Car’s commitment and ability to provide holistic solutions that satisfy all of the needs of golf course owners and resort operators.

In addition to utility and turf utility vehicles, Club Car will for the first time reveal the Onward™, a personal transportation vehicle (PTV) and will have a lifted, 4-passenger version on display at its booth. The Onward™ is Club Car’s first major product launch in 10 years and offers a highly customizable platform. It is designed for master planned communities and open neighborhoods. 

 “We continue to innovate with an eye toward the future and understand that our customers’ wants and needs are changing,” said Marc Dufour, president of Club Car. “We are proud of our 24-year partnership and to be an Official Partner of the PGA of America and look forward to sharing our new products at the PGA Merchandise show.”

And in terms of what’s next, Club Car recently partnered with LG Chem, the world’s leading automotive lithium-ion battery supplier, to develop an advanced, next generation lithium ion solution that will be scaled and used across the range of Club Car’s vehicles. The introduction and use of lithium-powered vehicles is expected in 2018.
