Mercedes-Benz and Golf go hand in hand, so it makes perfect sense that Mercedes chose the 2013 Open Championship as the ideal venue for them to unveil their all electric Vision Golf Cart.
On the inside, the futuristic looking golf cart has nothing but the most modern technologies, controlled almost entirely by the cart’s touch screen. Dock any of your Apple devices and you can control them along with numerous features of the golf cart, including music, the speakers, air conditioning, etc. The heart of the Vision’s interior design centers around keeping you connected, with the Mercedes Vision Golf Cart allowing you to easily connect with the golf clubhouse, receive weather and game updates, share your digital score card with other golfers or post your hole-in-one photo instantly.
There is also a “fore button” to warn other players when your shot didn’t go as planned. Rather than forcing you to strain a vocal cord, you can instead opt to hit the button, warning other golfers in the stray ball danger zone.
In addition to technology, the cart also takes its styling and comfort from Mercedes-Benz cars as well, with ergonomically heated and ventilated scultpure-like seats that offer the same level of comfort and control you’d expect in a car. The Mercedes AIRSCARF ensures you stay warm and can keep the cart open even in cooler temps.
When the AIRSCARF isn’t enough to keep you comforable, lightweight doors can be clicked in, while a lightning rod can be popped up in the event you weren’t keeping tabs on the weather situation.
The designers did not just build the golf cart for the golf course – it’s also able to run on normal roads with all the vital features needed – indicators, headlamps and tail lights. Thanks to the LED headlamps, play can also continue when the light starts to fail, as they also include a floodlight function to help light the course.
