Mercedes-Benz has long been at the forefront of motor vehicle technology, and now the German car manufacturer is bringing its innovation to a new frontier: The golf course.
Teaming up with Garia, the company introduced its first luxury golf cart in the Mercedes-Benz Style Edition Garia Golf Car. From afar, the cart looks like a smart car, and many of its features – like a leather-trimmed cabin, a Bluetooth speaker system and 10.1-inch touchscreen – emulate this design. But Mercedes has tailored this vehicle for the links, with bag and ball holders, as well as a built-in refrigerator under the seat.
The cart can go up to 31 kmh/ (restricted), offers 80 kilometres of range and charges in about six hours.
At the moment, there are only two such carts in the world, one which will be on display at Royal Troon for this week’s Open Championship. However, the company has stated it plans on producing more if the reaction is right.
Big question is, how much? It’s most likely a case of ‘if you have to ask, you probably can’t afford it.’
