Golf Cart INTELLIBRAKE™ TECHNOLOGY
E-Z-GO THE INDUSTRY LEADER IN AC AND INTELLIBRAKE TECHNOLOGY
For more than eight years, E-Z-GO’s RXV® golf car has delivered unrivaled performance for golf facilities around the globe. The only vehicle equipped with a revolutionary combination of AC power and IntelliBrake™ technology, the RXV has raised the bar on superior performance and energy efficiency. By using an innovative AC motor and IntelliBrake System, the RXV is more efficient, easier to use and provides better value than other vehicles.
WHAT DOES AC TECHNOLOGY MEAN?
The next generation RXV utilizes the same pioneering AC technology introduced with the RXV’s launch in 2008 that has been proven to generate increased energy efficiency, longer run time between charges and more hill-climbing power. AC, or alternating current, delivers power more efficiently and faster than direct current, or DC, because of the way it is transmitted. This makes AC vehicles efficient and powerful, all while using less energy
WHAT IS THE E-Z-GO INTELLIBRAKE SYSTEM?
E-Z-GO’s patented IntelliBrake System encompasses two revolutionary technologies - a motor brake that slows the vehicle when traveling up or down steep grades, and an automatically applied parking brake. The motor brake automatically engages when you are driving to slow the vehicle on hills and the parking brake automatically activates whenever the vehicle is stopped, so your golfers no longer have to set and release a brake. Unlike mechanical brakes which waste energy by creating friction and heat, the IntelllibrakeBrake provides full-time regenerative braking. During this process, the motor captures the energy typically used to brake and uses it to recharge the batteries.
E-Z-GO’S UNIQUE COMBINATION: BENEFITS OF THE AC & INTELLIBRAKE SYSTEM
- Reliability: E-Z-GO’s RXV offers increased reliability over other vehicles in the industry because of its revolutionary AC and IntelliBrake technology. With 15% greater efficiency compared to DC- powered vehicles, the RXV generates more power while using less energy, giving you a longer battery life and a 21% energy return back to the batteries from regenerative braking. Its superior hill-climbing ability and constant power allow the RXV to cover more ground quickly and efficiently. And with fewer wearable parts and a sealed brake, the RXV is reliable in any environment.
- Experience: The RXV’s advanced technology and rugged reliability offer premium performance and give your golfers a superior on-course experience. Equipped with robust AC power, the RXV maintains 97% of its speed when climbing hills, offers consistent all-day speed and best-in-class acceleration, giving your golfers a better pace of play. A parking brake that automatically engages whenever the vehicle is stopped is simple and convenient to use for golfers- and protects against damage. With the highest level of efficiency, durability, reliability and performance, the RXV makes your operation more efficient and gives your guests an experience second to none.
- Value: The unique combination of the RXV’s zero-emissions AC drivetrain and IntelliBrake System reduces operational costs and generates industry-leading efficiency. Delivering more power while using less energy, the RXV gives you increased battery life and up to 180 more rounds under warranty, stretching your investment further. Fewer wearable parts in the AC motor, such as brushes and bearings, and an IntelliBrake System that does not require brake pads, adjustment or parts replaced regularly help reduce maintenance time. E-Z-GO supports its AC and IntelliBrake technologies with the industry’s largest network of factory-direct technical experts.
