First Personal Transportation Vehicle to Offer Four Forward-Facing Seats in Compact, Golf Car-Sized Footprint
AUGUSTA, GA (June 1, 2021) — E-Z-GO, a Textron Specialized Vehicles business, announces its new vehicle, the E-Z-GO Liberty, the industry’s first vehicle to offer four forward-facing seats in a compact, golf-car-sized footprint. Powered by a high-performance, zero-maintenance Samsung SDI lithium-ion battery system, the Liberty provides a premium driving experience.
As an industry leader in golf car and PTV design and manufacturing, E-Z-GO continues to make statements with its innovative features and bold styles. E-Z-GO vehicles are designed and manufactured by Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc., a Textron Inc. (NYSE: TXT) company.
Liberty Features and Accessories
The E-Z-GO Liberty is the first PTV with four forward-facing seats in a golf-car-sized footprint, providing a spacious second row for passengers and extensive storage space with a shorter wheelbase than other industry models with four forward-facing seats. Its shorter wheelbase offers enhanced maneuverability and a tighter turning radius compared to competing vehicles. Engineered with versatility in mind, customers can choose from a variety of accessories that attach to the Liberty’s 2-inch rear universal hitch receiver, including a cargo storage holder or golf bag holder.
Samsung SDI Lithium Technology
The E-Z-GO Liberty continues to elevate industry standards with its dedication to energy efficiency. The Liberty is powered by a highly efficient AC electric drivetrain with Samsung SDI lithium battery technology, also found in E-Z-GO’s ELiTE vehicle series. The Liberty, like other ELiTE models, releases zero emissions, requires no battery maintenance, and is backed by an eight-year battery warranty. In addition, the ELiTE lithium vehicle series charges faster and more efficiently than vehicles equipped with traditional lead-acid batteries.
E-Z-GO’s ELiTE lithium vehicles have proven their performance without sacrificing consistent power or comfort through 25 million hours of successful use.
The E-Z-GO Liberty is offered in two tailored packages: Commuter and Explorer. The Liberty Commuter, built for driving through neighborhoods, is equipped with Kenetica tires on SPDR wheels, a convex mirror, turn signals and fender flares, giving the customer all the accessories needed to travel their community in style.
The E-Z-GO Liberty Explorer is ready for adventure, and comes standard with Paramount M/T tires on SPDR wheels, fender flares, and a brush guard for an unparalleled ride.
