Volvo Golf Cart - Click above for high-res image gallery

For all of the work that car companies are doing to shift public perception away from the electric vehicle=golf cart image, Volvo has proudly announced that its first all-electric car will be, in fact, a golf cart. It's called, wait for it, the Volvo Golf Cart.

Looking a little bit like a Volvo C70, the single-seat cart was developed by Swedish company Pro Green Nordic and really only shares the look and badge with other Volvos. The cart uses three 12V batteries that recharge overnight and offer a 15 km/h top speed. Volvo is planning on unveiling the car during the European leg of the Volvo World Match Play Championship in Casares, Spain in late October. The price will probably be a painful $8,000 U.S., but the good news is that this sucker has a 60-km (37-mile) range, so you can be confident driving it home after a day on the greens.

      I'm not sure anybody but the most bigoted conservative suburban hick golf hack would attempt to compare an electric vehicle to a golf cart, and a lot of golf carts are gas powered, the one I've driven actually had no idle it would start when you hit the gas pedal! like cars should have been doing since day one

      As long as everyone is completely sure it isn't april 1st then I sure as hell hope somebody has lost a job over this.

      This is dumb. To be practical, it should carry at least 2 people, 2 sets of clubs, and have an awning. Yes, it should be more like a traditional golf cart.
