YAMAHA GOLF-CAR COMPANY DEBUTS POWERTECH AC™ IRS & AGM BATTERY OPTION AT 2020 PGA® MERCHANDISE SHOW

The Yamaha Golf-Car Company recently completed yet another successful PGA® Merchandise Show in Orlando, Florida, this time featuring the introductions of both the new PowerTech AC Independent Rear Suspension and Trojan Motive T875-AGM Battery option.

PowerTech AC Independent Rear Suspension (IRS)

Beginning April 2020, all Drive2® PowerTech AC models will now come standard with independent rear suspension (IRS). Players on the course will easily navigate terrain thanks to the IRS’s premium shock absorption. Durability and trusted Yamaha construction, plus a balanced weight on terrain, make for the most stable and comfortable ride experienced in an AC golf car.

Trojan Motive T875-AGM Battery Option

Also, later this year, Motive T875-AGM batteries by Trojan will be available as an option to our standard flooded lead-acid (FLA) batteries. These AGM batteries are protected by a “Life of the Lease” warranty and do not require watering—making maintenance worry free. Motive T875-AGM batteries have a shorter charging time than standard FLA batteries and are manufactured from 98% recyclable materials. Test rides were available at the show for Yamaha’s Drive2 golf car product line and competitive products for a side-by-side comparison. The Drive2 line was also put to work, along with several Yamaha multipassenger vehicles, transporting attendees at various Yamaha shuttle stops to the Demo Day entrance.
