Garia, the global manufacturer of luxury golf carts, has appointed ePower Trucks to distribute its new range of utility vehicles (UTVs).
The road-legal Utility City sets new benchmarks in terms of standard features for a UTV cab, providing unrivaled height and leg room. It is also the first electric utility truck manufacturer to offer a Lithium-Ion battery pack as an option, replacing the standard 8x 6V lead acid pack.
The Li-Ion option significantly reduces vehicle GVW, recharge time and battery maintenance, while increasing range between charges. It has a top speed of 45kph (28mph) and a range of up to 60km (37 miles) on a single charge.
Designed for urban operations, the Garia Utility City has compact dimensions of 1.31m wide and 3.23m long. It has a turning radius of just 3.25m. The flatbed has a payload of up to 740kg. Other body options include mesh cage, drop sides, tipper, and a fully enclosed van with rear and side doors.
Garia is known worldwide for its golf carts. The Danish company’s Utility vehicles are built using many of the same high-quality automotive components, which are also found in luxury cars. It is the first OEM in its sector to be supplied with Li-Ion batteries from Samsung SDI.
Jerry Hanss, Managing Director of ePower Trucks, said: “The Garia Utility truck is a great vehicle that is ideal for last-mile deliveries and urban operations. The option of a Lithium-Ion battery is an industry first for this type of utility truck, further enhancing its appeal.”
Based in Oldham, Greater Manchester, ePower Trucks is a leading supplier of road-legal and off-highway electric vehicles. It is the established UK distributor for Alke UTVs, the Golia range of electric commercial and passenger vehicles, and an electric conversion of the Nissan Cabstar.
Shaun Wynne, Regional Sales Manager for Garia, said: “ePower Trucks is the ideal partner for Garia Utility. The company has a 15-year track record in this sector and a great reputation for customer service.”
