Augusta, United States: Move over, golf cars! There’s a new car on the block: the personal transportation vehicle (PTV), a small four-wheeled vehicle similar to a golf car that’s made for neighbourhood transportation.
And Club Car, an Executive Member of the Asian Golf Industry Federation, has a distinctive new model rolling off the line: the limited edition Jaunt PTV.
“The Jaunt PTV is tailor-made for seniors, families and individuals in communities where personal transportation is part of the lifestyle,” said Mary A. Sicard, Consumer Marketing Manager.
It comes in two and four-passenger electric models, and can be used both on and off course.
“Personalising a vehicle takes days, and using aftermarket parts can affect your warranty,” Sicard said. The limited edition Jaunt PTV avoids those problems. It comes factory-customised with the following features and carries a two-year limited warranty:
-An automotive-style body and cowl with dual halogen headlights and moulded-in colour that doesn’t show scratches. (Black, midnight sky metallic, red or silver metallic)
-A colour-co-ordinated canopy
-Luxurious marine-grade seats with complementary piping and stitching
-A rear flip seat (four-passenger models only)
“The Jaunt PTV is built on our exclusive rustproof AlumiCore frame and engineered to deliver years of inexpensive, reliable transportation,” Sicard said.
The vehicles are accessorised for neighbourhood transportation with:
-19-mph Private Use Speed Option
-Headlights, tail lights, brake lights and horn
-Comfort-grip steering wheels
-PTV kits (decals and reflectors)
-Exclusive Club Car grills
-Automotive-style alloy wheels
The quiet, emissions-free Jaunt PTV delivers one of the longest ranges in its class and helps avoid dead batteries and ruined outings.
Its new charging system issues alerts that prevent common user errors. It also charges during power fluctuations and monitors the battery pack after charging to deliver power as needed.
A standard single-point watering system simplifies battery maintenance and extends battery life.
