AUGUSTA, GA (June 27, 2019) — Club Car®, a brand of Ingersoll Rand® and a global leader in golf, commercial utility and personal-use vehicles, this summer unveiled two new offerings from its Onward line of personal transportation vehicles (PTVs): the 6 passenger Onward and HP Lithium-Ion powered Onward. The new offerings come amid growing consumer demand for PTVs with increased space and seating options, and low maintenance electric PTVs.
“As we observe shifts in the transportation needs of communities and families, these new customizations were designed with our evolving customers in mind,” said Ross Atherton, vice president and general manager, Club Car Consumer at Ingersoll Rand. “Our customers who are looking for more seating in their PTVs want to know that the 6 passenger Onward PTV is not only comfortable and spacious, but safe and reliable.”
The 6 passenger Onward PTV was engineered with rider comfort, safety and style in mind. With a standard 4-wheel brake system and enhanced suspension system included in all 6 passenger Onward PTVs, each vehicle has optimal stopping power and improved handling and performance. The design of the 6 passenger Onward PTV includes grab handles, ample leg room, a one-piece canopy design that covers rear-facing passengers and multiple compartments for storage. Standard among all Club Car PTVs, the 6 passenger Onward PTV is customizable with different colors, upgrades and accessories to make every PTV as unique as its driver.
“The HP Lithium-Ion powered Onward PTV also caters to the demands of our shifting customer, combining technology and performance in harmony,” said Atherton. “State-of-the-art technology allows the Lithium-Ion battery to perform without sacrificing power, and the PTV offers the same efficiency, comfort and reliability of other Onward PTVs.”
Club Car’s HP Lithium-Ion powered Onward PTV features a 3.1 kilowatt hour Lithium Ion battery that requires no maintenance. The 4.7 horsepower motor and 375 Amp controller deliver outstanding hill-climbing power and acceleration. The HP Lithium-Ion powered Onward PTV includes an industry leading six-year battery warranty, and the state-of-the-art battery management system ensures the battery pack is safeguarded from the elements in a self-contained, fully coated steel and watertight battery case.
