I have seen more and more of my colleagues at work using electric scooter to commute from train station to the work place (about 2km away). Some of them look big and tough enough to accommodate a golfer and a cart bag!
You can find my other types online, here is the "typical" specs:
- Motor: 1000W/ 1600W Peak
- Battery Pack: 48V 12Ah
- Top Speed: 50km/h (mode, terrain, riding style, weight dependant)
- Max Km: 35km
- Range: 35 km/h (mode, terrain, riding style, weight dependant)
- Wheelbase: 97cm
- Max Rider Weight: 120kg
- Charging time: 6-8 hours
- Charging Voltage: 220-240v
- Price around: $500 - $600 AUD
Now that's some serious power.... a comparable two passengers golf cart runs at 3,3000W, at least 10 times heavier and cost at least 6 times more... and more importantly not portable. As me and my bag run around 100kgs (under the weight limit), this present a good alternative to hiring a golf cart. My calculation suggest it will take less than 20 golf cart hires to pay for the scooter.
What are my chances here that this will work?
