Working More Efficiently


Cushman have taken the ELiTE Lithium battery system that can be found on the E-Z-GO RXV ELiTE and used it to create the new Cushman Hauler 800 ELiTE! This latest variant of the hugely popular Hauler 800 utilises the 48V AC power train that can be found on the lead-acid powered version and makes it even more efficient!

Because the ELiTE Samsung SDI Battery technology doesn’t require any maintenance or battery watering, you can simply take the Hauler 800 ELiTE off charge and start your day. And because the system can also spot charge, you can top up the batteries as needed.

The Hauler 800 ELiTE comes with a 5 Year Battery Warranty


ELiTE Power & Performance


Like the RXV ELiTE, the Cushman Hauler 800 ELiTE’s efficiency is improved by being significantly lighter than the lead-acid equivalent, in this case 135Kg lighter, which means less impact on your turf. Despite the weight reduction, there’s no drop in performance, the 800 ELiTE is still able to carry a payload of up to 800lb and tow 900lb.

The Hauler 800 ELiTE is going to be popular with clubs and green-keepers thanks to its greater efficiency, increased availability and lighter weight all combined with the superb performance that all Cushman Haulers deliver effortlessly.

To find out more about this revolutionary utility vehicle, call Golf Car UK on 0345 8055 494.

Last year (2017) E-Z-GO released their ELiTE range of golf cars, becoming the first major manufacturer to adopt lithium-ion battery technology in their golf cars.

This was thanks to a collaboration with Samsung SDI, hundreds of lithium cells are used in one battery pack, and these battery packs are controlled by a Battery Management System the monitors everything from battery health to their temperature and efficiency.

Golf clubs have been keen to make use of the new technology, with a growing number of Golf Car UK’s customers choosing the RXV ELiTE golf car over the normal lead acid vehicle, even though the ELiTE car is slightly more expensive. The price difference is still one of the hurdles when deciding on what golf car to purchase, but when you factor in some of the following features you can see how the RXV ELiTE becomes the most obvious option for any golf club.


Golf clubs all over the UK will have policies in place to help reduce their impact on the environment and all golfers will be conscious of how they are contributing to this.

Electric golf buggies and utility vehicles are an obvious solution as to how the golf industry can reduce the carbon emissions while on the course. Lead acid batteries can be recycled, but their life-span of ~4 years before they’ll need replacing.

The Lithium-Ion batteries in the ELiTE golf cars are warrantied for 5 years, and take less time to fully charge, so they’ll be better for the environment.




The current level of technology of electric vehicles means that they’ll need recharging regularly in order to get the best performance from them.

It takes approximately 8 hours for a set of four 12V batteries to recharge fully, and to optimise the battery life span they should be left to complete each charging cycle.

A lithium-ion battery on the ELiTE golf cars can recharge up to 80% of their capacity in just one hour, and complete a full charge in under 4 hours. Lithium-ion batteries can also be charged to less than 100 percent with no long term effects on the battery lifespan. As such ELiTE golf cars can “opportunity charge”, plugging in vehicles for quick charges that will rapidly restore useable levels of energy.


It’s important to take care of your golf cars batteries so that you get consistent performance & reliability across the life of the vehicle. Regular checks for wear and tear, especially to the steering, batteries and body, will ensure that your buggies are available more often. Lead acid batteries require weekly checks on the battery terminals, water levels and ensuring that they complete charging cycles in order to get the best performance from them. This can take a few minutes per buggy, but it’s time that builds up over the course of a year.

The lithium batteries on the ELiTE golf cars require virtually no maintenance at all. There’s no battery watering or terminal checks to perform, ultimately saving hours of time over the life of the buggies that you can use on the most important daily tasks.




The lead acid batteries on an RXV adds about 150Kg to the total weight of the vehicle, and lead acid batteries will start to lose voltage output and performance once ~70% of their capacity has been used. This impacts the carrying capacity of the vehicle and will become more noticeable as throughout the day.

By comparison, the lithium-ion batteries on the ELiTE RXV weigh just 23Kg, that’s a weight saving of 127Kg! This weight saving means that the EXV ELiTE has a greater capacity than it’s lead acid equivalent, while also benefitting from lithium-ion battery traits – like maintaining the same voltage output regarless of the batteries charge.

If you put the 2 vehicles side by side, you’d notice how much more consistently the ELiTE car performs long after the lead acid buggy starts to show signs of fatigue.


There have been a recent number of battery thefts from golf clubs in the UK, the thieves target lead acid batteries in particular rather than the vehicles themselves. We’ve also seen where clubs have both types of batteries present the thieves leave the ELiTE buggies alone, as the lithium-ion batteries are not valuable to them.



Our Summary

The consumer might be faced with a slightly larger up-front cost when purchasing the ELiTE golf cars. But these are outweighed by the performance, longevity and reduced energy & maintenance costs that lithium-ion batteries offer.

In the coming years we’re predicting that we’ll see an ever growing percentage of the golf cars that we sell being the lithium-ion powered ELiTE series golf cars and the technology extending to utility & shuttle vehicles.

We’ve delivered another customised RXV buggy to one of our customers. This electric RXV golf buggy has been modified with a lockable aluminium rear box and features clips to store long hand and hooks to hang other equipment from. This option is essentially a smaller version of the large laundry boxes we’d put on vehicles like the Cushman Shuttle 2.

The aluminium rear box fitted to this customised RXV buggy features internal shelves allowing the user to organise their storage and locking doors should they need to keep items in there during the day or even overnight. Of course if you’re after something similar, but with a different purpose in mind, the inside and outside of the box can be setup differently to meet your needs. The E-Z-GO RXV keeps it’s great performance, and thanks to the motor-brake, it’s superb safety features.

The RXV shown here doesn’t have any additional options fitted to it, however they can be spec’d with:

  • all weather covers
  • head lights
  • rear lights
  • indicators
  • hazard beacons
  • mirrors
  • different tyres if required

If you would like any further information about this, any other customised RXV buggy or any of the parts that we’ve featured, then send us a message or call us on 0345 8055 494.

We’ve made our Parts Shop more accessible, at any time of day or night, by being able to take debit & credit cards thanks to the addition of a SagePay payment gateway!

SagePay is one of the most recognised and trusted payment gateways for customers and businesses. This means that our customers can order items when we’re busy on the phone or not in the office, and allows us to take orders from our parts shop knowing that Sage’s fraud prevention and security.

Of course, if what you’re looking for isn’t on our parts shop or you need some help with your order, call us on 0345 8055 494 and we’ll be happy to help.

Cushman Hauler Pro with Bed Canopy

We’ve added a new option for our Cushman Haulers, a rear cargo bed canopy which provides a light-weight & weather-proof cover for the roto-moulded cargo bed, and can be fitted to the all our Cushman Hauler and Cushman Hauler X vehicles.

Our design uses a light-weight frame to support the canopy, this is secured to the roto-moulded 12ft3 cargo bed with straps and still allows the bed to tip as before. The frame can be customised with shelves and racks so you can organise your tools and equipment. Access to the bed is via the zipped flap which can be rolled up and kept open if required thanks to two clips at the top.

Like our aluminium box options, this offers a dry and versatile storage space for moving large quantities of materials and equipment to where they’re needed. The biggest advantage of the canopy is that it’s significantly lighter than the aluminium box option, meaning that the same vehicle will keep more of it’s range. The other advantage over the box is that the canopy and frame can be easily removed incase the need arises.

The cargo bed canopy can be further customised and can be ordered in a number of different colours, with company branding too, should you wish.

The Cushman Hauler Pro X shown here also has an all weather cab, tow hitch and mirrors fitted. Other options available include:

  • led light bars
  • hazard beacons
  • all terrain tyres
  • alloy wheels

If you want any further information on the cargo bed canopy, the Cushman Hauler range or any of our vehicles, parts & accessories, then send us a message or call us on 0345 8055 494.

We’ve just delivered a new E-Z-GO RXV ELiTE buggy, fitted with a rear box, to the Army Parachute Association at Netheravon Airfield – the home of the British Army’s The Red Devils Parachute Display Team

There have been hangars at Netheravon since 1913, and in fact it’s believed to be the oldest military airfield, in continuous use, in the world. The latest arrival is the Army Parachute Association’s new E-Z-GO RXV ELiTE buggy, perhaps not the most significant moment in the airfields 105 year history but it’s a useful tool supporting their daily flight operations.

Perfect for the role

Taking the standard RXV ELiTE golf car and fitting a rear cargo box, this buggy will now be transporting personnel, power packs, and items such as aircraft chocks all over the airfield. The power packs are used to start the Cessna Grand Caravan drop-plane, an aircraft that over the summer will regularly make 20 ascents every day! By using these packs they actually help to reduce the wear & tear on the aircraft and make it possible to get up as often as they do.

Other duties that the APA’s new ELiTE buggy will be required to perform is to ferry personnel all over airfield, including taking drivers over to their fuel tanker and ground handlers to waiting aircraft. The extra range offered by the ELiTE’s lithium batteries was one of the reasons the Army Parachute Association chose the RXV ELiTE, possibly the biggest factor was the maintenance free lithium batteries and the reduced weight of the buggy which makes the vehicle much kinder to the grass airfield, even when it’s really soft underfoot.


Army Parachute Association


APA RXV ELiTE will take drivers over to their other support vehicles

The APA was founded in 1962 after vigorous and persistent campaigning by Lt Col Dare Wilson MBE, MC, commanding officer of 22nd SAS. Prior to then, various military units had formed their own clubs and operated independently. Initially the APA had no permament basebut travelled, with their aircraft, to any drop zone available, the only rules being that the pilot and plane had to be fuelled and carefully looked after! The APA is a not-for-profit organisation and uses all income generated to continually improve both the services and facilities for it’s members.

One thing that has never changed is the enthusiasm and spirit of APA members. To this day they are still producing some of the best parachutist in the UK, many of whom regularly represent Great Britain on the World Stage. The APA support more military jumpers than ever and subsidise veterans, TA and reservists as well as serving servicemen and women. The Army Parachute Association also regularly host National competitions and are fast gaining the reputation for being a premier competition venue in the UK. What’s more, through tandem jumps, the APA are supporting a huge array of Charities and have assisted in raising a lot of money for thousands of charities all over the UK.

If you’re an experienced skydiver, want to learn to skydive or just want to experience skydiving via a tandem jump, head over to www.netheravon.com and the APA will be happy to help you achieve your goal!

Zero Emissions Cities

At the end of last year, Oxford City Council and Oxford County Council introduced joint proposals to become the first of the UK’s zero emissions cities, by establishing a Zero Emissions Zone in Oxford city centre, a plan that would see historic reductions in air pollution.

Oxford City Council’s plan to become the first in a series of zero emissions cities in the UK, includes the phasing out and eventual ban of petrol and diesel cars, taxis and busses by the year 2020. London has also announced similar plans, wanting to introduce the world’s first Ultra-Low Emission Zone to the capital by September 2020. The plan for Oxford city centre zone will expand as vehicle technology develops, with the ultimate goal to incorporate all vehicle types across the whole city by 2035. The aim is to significantly reduce the air pollution levels in the city centre by up to 75%!

The City Council, supported by the County Council, has already won £500,000 of Government funding to install charging points for electric taxis, and £800,000 of Government funding to install 100 electric charging points for Oxford residents so they can support the Zero Emission Zone.

Going forwards, more electric vehicle charging points will need to be installed to support the cities infrastructure and allow the widespread use of electric vehicles across Oxford.

Light Utility Vehicles in Zero Emissions Cities

All this progress is dependant on the vehicle technology being developed to support the goals of Oxford City Council. Having said that, having a fleet of versatile, reliable and professional looking light utility vehicles right now is a real possibility.

Electric light utility vehicles are comparable to their petrol or diesel equivalents at time of purchase, vital for any fleet manager looking to keep a tight lid on their budget. And despite charging costs, electric vehicles are significantly cheaper to run and maintain as they have minimal moving parts, lowering maintenance time and costs. Zero emissions cities would be able to easily operate fleets of electric light utility vehicles which could be used by all staff, as they’re well suited to fulling a whole range of jobs.

While we specialise in golf buggies, Golf Car UK has fleets of utility vehicles and passenger shuttles across the country. Vehicles like our Cushman Hauler Pro offer excellent functionality and flexibility while delivering up to a 50 mile range on a single charge. This makes them incredibly useful as delivery or support vehicles, especially in parks and pedestrianised ares, and more effective than conventional trucks or vans.

And there’s no reason that Zero Emission Cities couldn’t utilise the Cushman Hauler Pro to help them meet their environmental goals. They can be easily customised with logos and hazard stickers, there’s a full enclosed cab available as an option and beacon lights can be fitted.

What’s more, these vehicles can have their maximum speeds set, minimising risk to operators and the general public. The Hauler Pro can be made road legal too, allowing it to transit people, materials and tools between areas of busy Zero Emission Cities.

Golf Car UK can offer these eco friendly electric vehicles to your specification either as a purchase or lease, all backed up and supported by our team of factory trained engineers.

Golf Car UK ELiTE Demo buggy
EZGO RXV ELiTE Demonstrator – Golf Car UK


We’ve just taken delivery of our RXV ELiTE demonstrator! And to say we’re impressed would be an understatement.

There aren’t any cosmetic changes when side by side with the standard RXV, other than the ELiTE badge on the dashboard, but when you lift up the seats you begin to see where EZGO’s technology revolution really makes it’s mark.

Samsung SDI battery on our RXV ELiTE Demonstrator

Normally we would find a selection of batteries, battery filling system, charger and controller. But our RXV ELiTE demonstrator only has black plastic shielding, with ‘Activated by SAMSUNG SDI’ moulded into the top. There’s just two terminals visible and plenty of stickers… and that’s it!

The ‘zero battery maintenance’ selling point is definitely a huge plus, there’s no filling system or extra leads to manage. Clubs around the UK will see this as a dream, it’ll make the every day tasks needed to keep a buggy fleet working and earning, a thing of the past.

A lack of batteries also equates to a lack of weight. 125kg less weight to be in fact! That’s going to be welcome news for all green keepers who will see their grass taking less strain.

Our RXV ELiTE demonstrator also has a few extra options, the premium seats look fantastic on the RXV anyway and just adds a touch of extra comfort. They were certainly notable during our test-drive and the performance of our RXV ELiTE demonstrator, delivered to us with half a charge, was consistent and very responsive on the throttle.

We’re certain that this technological revolution will more than just spark the interest of golf clubs around the country. Thanks to the zero maintenance lithium batteries, consistent performance, greater efficiency and the unprecedented 5 year warranty.
