A recent independent analysis by Southern California Edison (SCE) demonstrated that the E-Z-GO RXV electric golf car, with its innovative AC Drive, full-time regenerative braking and high-frequency PowerWise QE charger, is as much as 39 percent more energy-efficient than traditional DC-powered golf cars. According to SCE’s results, energy efficiency improved by 31 percent to 39 percent with the RXV electric model. The RXV’s AC motor also allowed the vehicle to maintain higher performance than DC-powered vehicles as batteries lose energy over the course of a round.
“Since many golf courses replace their golf cart fleets every three to five years, the opportunity to invest in more efficient technology could show dramatic impacts in charging efficiency over a relatively short time horizon,” the SCE report stated.
“We are pleased that independent tests continue to confirm that the E-Z-GO RXV represents a substantial improvement in energy efficiency and reduced carbon footprint over the traditional golf car,” said Ron Otten, Vice President of Engineering for E-Z-GO, a Textron Inc. company based in Augusta, Ga. “The RXV was designed and built to break new ground in golf-car and light-transportation technology, and it’s exciting to see our customers recognizing its benefits and the value it provides.”
