Stewart Golf has unveiled its new X10 range of electric trolleys, which build on the success of the British-based company’s previous X Series models with a variety of upgrades, including a longer-lasting battery.
Originally launched as the X1 Remote in 2003, Stewart Golf has constantly evolved the product, with X3, X5 and X7 models, before the ground-breaking X9 Follow was released in 2014.
The X10 will be available in Follow (£1,499) and Remote (£1,199) versions. Both benefit from the same EcoDrive motor technology that was launched with the Q Follow, meaning they are up to 40% more efficient than the outgoing version. This means that the X10 battery will offer users 40% more golf than previous versions for each charge.
In addition, the X10 benefits from the latest electronics system that is now manufactured in the UK after being ‘re-shored’ from Europe last year. The X10 Follow features the latest seventh generation of Stewart Golf’s proprietary Follow system, featuring dedicated electronic calibration which results in the most accurate and reliable Follow experience to date. A new electronics assembly area at the company’s Gloucestershire factory ensures each handset is optimised and matched to the trolley’s main electronics system using a bespoke autotuning system.
David Funnell, Stewart Golf’s Managing Director, said: “As a company lead by engineers, it’s in our DNA to constantly develop and improve our machines. The X Series has been a fixture of our product range since day one and it remains integral to the business.”
Mark Stewart, the Stewart Golf’s Chief Executive, added: “Even after a very successful launch of the Q Follow, sales of the X Series have remained strong. In the refreshed X Series and new Q Series electric models, and the R Series Push, Stewart Golf has a strong product line up for 2021 and beyond.”
Stewart Golf is in the process of expanding their capacity in anticipation of further growth, after almost doubling turnover in 2020. As well as almost doubling the number of staff at the company, they are also adding a further 3,500sqft of floor space. This will allow the creation of dedicated Q, X and R Series production lines, as well as a second electronics assembly area to keep up with increased demand.
