Mercedes-Benz Vision Golf Cart 2013 Review

Mercedes-Benz has presented the Vision Golf Cart, a result of design ideas submitted by hundreds of golf and automobile fans around the globe, at the 2013 Open Championship. The ideas provided the basis for a visionary golf cart design study created by the Mercedes-Benz design department.

The Mercedes-Benz Vision Golf Cart is electric driven, powered by a battery that is kept continuously charged by a solar module integrated into the roof or via manual charging.

The vehicle is controlled in innovative and intuitive fashion via a joystick mounted on the centre console, so making it possible for either passenger to drive the golf cart. It has a multimedia panel that includes a rotatable docking station for an iPad or iPhone and a USB interface. Vehicle functions such as loudspeakers or the air-conditioning system, the head-up display, the music system or communication with the clubhouse and other golf carts can be controlled by the multimedia panel.

There is also a “fore button” to warn other players of a misplaced shot.

The interior takes its cues from the design of a Mercedes-Benz car. The elegant and ergonomically shaped seats, for example, are heated as well as ventilated. The AIRSCARF neck-level heating system, first introduced in 2011 in the new SLK Roadster, ensures you stay warm and can keep the cart open even in cooler weather.

The golf cart is also able to run on normal roads with all vital features needed such as - indicators, headlamps and tail lights. Thanks to the LED headlamps, play can also continue when the light starts to fail, as they include a floodlight function. The Golf Cart includes a whole range of stowage facilities.
