Augusta, United States: Club Car has introduced the versatile new Precedent Stretch personal transportation vehicle (PTV).
Club Car, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation, says the Precedent Stretch ‘combines unsurpassed power and durability with four forward-facing seats and 35 additional inches of legroom, for people who want to take the long view’.
“The vehicle’s automotive design fosters conversation, camaraderie and comfort. It delivers the most front and rear legroom of any four-passenger vehicle in its class,” says Product Manager David Woodward.
“In the Precedent Stretch PTV, you don’t have to leave a friend or relative behind or sitting on a rear-facing seat.”
The Precedent Stretch PTV comes with a maximum speed of 15 miles per hour or with Club Car’s 19-mile per hour Private Use Speed Option, making it ideal for neighbourhood transportation.
The Precedent Stretch PTV was designed to carry the additional length and weight. The car is equipped with 10 per cent more battery capacity, providing more range than competitive vehicles. The system features:
-A rugged 3.7-hp IQ Plus electric motor
-A 350-amp controller
-A heavy-duty solenoid
-Four-gauge battery wires
-Regenerative brakes that capture and store energy used during braking, extending the miles per charge.
The vehicle is durable, environmentally safe and family friendly, using no gas and releasing no carbon emissions. It comes with:
-A spacious bagwell for groceries, gear or two sets of clubs
-An exclusive rustproof, corrosion-resistant, 2-x-3-inch tubular aluminium frame that makes it more impact resistant than steel frames
-An extended Monsoon Top Canopy with built-in drains that channel water to the ground
-A heavy-duty SportDrive Steering and Suspension System for a smoother ride and better handling
-An integrated rear-passenger grab bar, a five-panel mirror and improved rear braking for safety
-One of the longest, most inclusive warranties in its class.
The Precedent Stretch PTV also has a new charging system known as ERIC – Efficient. Reliable. Intelligent. Connected.
“The solid-state, high-frequency system works globally, keeps charging even during voltage fluctuations and outsmarts common user errors,” says Woodward.
ERIC issues audio and visual alerts to inform owners when charging begins, when the car is fully charged and of any problems with the charger. On-car dash lights advise when the battery state of charge falls to 20 and then 10 per cent charge.
Unlike chargers in competitive vehicles, ERIC continuously monitors the battery pack after charging and delivers power as needed. It can be charged through a standard 110-volt outlet, and comes with a standard single-point watering system that makes battery maintenance quick and easy.
