IQ Plus

The IQ Plus drive system enables electric utility vehicles to handle many of the tough jobs that once required the strength of petrol powered vehicles. The 48-volt system continually provides testing and diagnostic feedback, so you can adjust performance settings based on user needs.

All-new EFI engine comes standard.

With a best-in-class, overhead cam, electronic fuel injection engine that delivers more horsepower, higher efficiency and lower maintenance costs, only Club Car’s Precedent with EFI can drive your operation to greater success.

Performance: Increased reliability, quieter valve train, reduced vibration, increased horsepower and improved fuel economy.

Value: The best warranty in golf means zero stress and excellent resale value.

Cost of Ownership: Time is really money with EFI. The longer it’s in the field, the greater return on your investment because it’s lower operational, maintenance and fuel costs accrue year after year, repaying your investment in long-term returns.

Fuel Economy: We chose the Subaru EX40 EFI engine for its class-leading power and reliability. Club Car’s Precedent with EFI enjoys a 35% power boost over our previous petrol engines while using 35% less fuel.
