Street Legal Golf Carts- Top 3 Benefits

If you are looking for a vehicle to get around town for you and your family but don’t want your gas to take a beating. Then buying a street-legal electric cart could be a great option for you. I currently work at E3 Vehicles, Los Angeles’ premiere electric golf cart dealership. And I have picked up some valuable information through my experience here that I would like to share with those of you inclined to invest in street-legal golf carts.


First of all, the majority of Street Legal Golf Carts in California are electric. They charge overnight using a standard 110v outlet, so you can charge these electric golf carts with a standard extension cord without the need to invest in additional charging equipment. A great alternative to Tesla!



How long do you charge a golf cart

The average charge time is about 4-6 hours and should be charged after each use. The newer electric cart models have smart charging technology that stops charging the batteries after they reach full capacity, known as a trickle-down resulting in longer-lasting batteries and control of your household electricity. Be sure to inquire about this feature when speaking with any electric cart dealer.
