On land, on water, in the air and now, on the golf course. The Mercedes-Benz Style Edition Garia Golf Car is the real sports car for the golf lovers and it interprets the collaboration between the Mercedes-Benz designers and the famous golf cart manufacturers Garia.
The tiniest star in the Mercedes-Benz galaxy is as hot and cool as the most luxurious car in the company’s portofolio, but also as sporty as the sportiest of them. The new Mercedes-Benz Style Edition Garia Golf Car seems to stand out, with totally different looks from the conventional golf carts. A large, curved windscreen provides the driver and the passenger with an ample view, while the carbon-fibre roof comes with a different colour than the base vehicle. With its short front and rear overhangs, it somewhat resembles a sporty baseball cap. The effect is to make the vehicle look low and more sporty.
The sporty impression is heightened by a small rear spoiler which acts as a golf bag holder while being fully integrated into the overall design as a significant feature. It is so constructed that it can accommodate two golf bags slanted rearwards. This slanted position allows golf clubs to be conveniently taken out and replaced. A carbon-fibre diffuser rounds off the lower rear end as a lighthearted reference to the vehicle’s character as a “real sports car”. The bench seat has a sculptured, inviting look like a lounge chair, and blends in with the exterior design to provide a sensual experience.
There is a refrigerator under the bench seat and a stowage tray under the dashboard to hold the golf balls aligned in a row.
On board a 10.1-inch screen provides the driver with all the necessary data. A hands-free system with Bluetooth connection and hi-fi speakers integrated into the rear roof frame provide connection with the smartphone.
The electric motor of the 440-kilogram Mercedes-Benz Style Edition Garia Golf Car has an output of three kilowatts, but can occasionally provide an 11-kW output for short intervals. It can reach a top speed of 18 mph and boasts a range of 50 miles. The charging time for the lithium-ion battery is of six hours.
