During the British Open festivities this past weekend, German luxury car manufacturer Mercedes-Benz unveiled their plans for a luxury golf cart inspired by the ideas submitted by fans.
Here are some details about the “Vision” golf cart, via Motor Authority:
The vehicle is electrically driven and runs on a battery that is charged via roof-top solar panels. Manual charging, as for a conventional golf cart, is also possible.
Inside, there’s plenty of technology. Using touch screen monitors, virtually all aspects of the cart can be controlled without extra buttons. The centre console also incorporates a multimedia panel that includes a rotatable docking station for an iPad or iPhone and a USB interface.
A joystick is used to control the vehicle instead of a steering wheel. This design was picked so that the vehicle can be driven by occupants on either side. One other interesting feature is the “fore button,” which as its name suggests can be used to quickly warn other players of a misplaced shot.
Pretty interesting. Check out some pictures of the cart below; it’s impressive.
