For you golf fans out there, are you tired of riding the same boring golf cart at every golf course? Perhaps it’s time to bring your own golf cart to the course. Ride in style with the new Mercedes-Benz Style Edition Garia Golf Car. You’ll be know as the mack daddy at your country club. Hands down, this is the Rolls of all golf carts.
Mercedes-Benz partnered with Daimler’s Think & Act Tank Business Innovation and golf cart manufacturer Garia to bring us the a real sports car for the links. I bet you’ll get more head turns with this tiny car than with a neon yellow Lamborghini Aventador!
The first feature I’d like to point out is the large curved windshield. This will help protect you and your +1 from the biting winds when your tee time is in the wee hours in the morning.
The roof is made out of carbon fiber, and the rear holds 2 golf bags. Notice the golf bags are slanted rearwards which makes inserting/pulling out your clubs much easier than the conventional vertical position. Your clubs won’t bang around as much, so there’s less wear and tear on your clubs when riding on the course. Great design Mercedes.
There’s also a large contoured bench seat, so your behind doesn’t slide left and right on bumpy terrain. And store your Coronas in the refrigerator below the seat. The worse is drinking warm beer on the course…
Lastly is the iPad sized 10.1″ touch screen display. You can view your driving range (range is 50 miles), speed (top speed is 19 mph), etc. and control the headlamps or rear lights, windshield heater, and wipers. You can also keep score or use the Bluetooth function to pair your phone with the hi-fi speakers in the roof. Check the weather or order food delivery from the club all through this display console.
Power is by lithium-ion battery which takes 6 hours for a full charge, and brakes are front disc.
Golf carts haven’t seen much innovation over the past decade, so it’s about time something modern, luxurious, and evolutionary comes out. Out with the boring and in with the new. This Mercedes-Benz Style Edition Garia Golf Car is just a show car right now, but a sales version will be available in the US market soon.
Unfortunately, pricing is unavailable now but does it really matter how much it’ll cost? You’re always guaranteed a frosty sip of your beer on every hole which probably could shave a few strokes off your score. This could mean the difference between breaking 100 or finally breaking the elusive 80. So isn’t that in itself a good reason to buy this Mercedes golf car? Yes it is!
