Club Car Carryall 6 LSV
ePowerTrucks, a division of Lift Safe Ltd and one of the UK’s largest distributors of electric vehicles, has partnered with Club Car to supply a full range of the company’s road-legal low-speed vehicles (LSVs).

As part of the agreement, ePowerTrucks will become another official distributor of Club Car’s utility Carryall and passenger Villager product lines.

It will also introduce a new 10-car Villager LSVs fleet available for short-term hire – a first for the industry and the only scheme of its kind available in the UK.

“This initiative creates in-roads into a broader range of sectors, meeting the requirements of businesses looking for short-term (three to four-day) leases for particular events, projects or timescales,” explained Jerry Hanss, Managing Director of ePowerTrucks.

“When we first discussed this with Club Car, we quickly identified a gap in the market place, which its Carryall and Villager product ranges fit nicely into. The increased flexibility of being able to offer short-term hire schemes opens up additional possibilities and opportunities for an even wider range of individuals and organisations,” he continued.

“From year to year, we look to consistently improve ePowerTrucks’ offering of electric powered vehicles – and Club Car provides the perfect fit. Its Carryall range is lighter than our other utility vehicles and its Villager products can offer a multitude of valuable add-ons and options.”

Jerry Hanss added: “Club Car has a strong brand and a good reputation. This echoes ePowerTrucks’ company ethos, as we strive to supply the broadest range of electric vehicles available in theUK, and pride ourselves on specialist solutions for a specific customer’s applications – which Club Car enables us easily to do.”

ePowerTrucks has an expansive customer base, consisting of UK and international companies as far ranging and diverse as: The National Trust, Rolls Royce, Bentley, Microsoft, General Electric, Coca Cola, BP, NHS Trusts, Local Authorities and many more.
