Is there any 8-person golf cart which can go at least 50 mph, so you can use all the parts and build an electric kit car?
Hi, Winfried! I sure hope not; ) At least here in the US, golf carts, even the ones that are street legal, are limited to 25mph for safety reasons. The golf cart you see in the video has been modified to race, and it'll go fast - 77mph in the quarter-mile! - but I don't think I'd want to take a golf cart any faster than 25mph under real driving conditions. Without a helmet and a roll cage, I mean; ) Now that I've said that, though, it looks like there are several NEVs that might have grown up from golf carts. They're still limited to 25mph on the road here in the US, again for safety reasons. The next generation of NEV, like the Zenn and the Miles, the cars that are electric conversions of regular (although tiny) gas-guzzlers imported from other countries, however? Those could safely go faster.
If you want to build an electric version of a kit car, though, why not just use a conversion kit?
Is fuel cell technology just an expensive distraction that diverts research and development dollars away from electric car battery research? Or are fuel cells a helpful tool for reducing global carbon…
