Are Electric Golf Carts Worth Paying For?

When it comes to name brand golf carts, almost everyone agrees Club Car is among the best. Which makes sense. Club Car is the main competitor to Bintelli and Ezgo golf carts, typically last a lengthy amount of time and can be customized to suit your personal preferences, but they also cost a bit more than a standard Bintelli Golf Cart. Whatever you choose, all three brands are strong in both dependability and value!

That said, even if you know how you want your golf cart to look, you may be a bit fuzzy on which type of motor you want. In this article, we explore whether or not electric golf carts are worth buying. If you have any questions, give Bintelli Powersports in Charleston, SC a call at (843) 405-8366.

Gas Golf Carts

Right now, a gas-powered golf cart without any extras is going to set you back by about $7,900 or more before adding any accessories or upgraded features. In exchange for the purchase, buyers receive a gas golf cart equipped with 13.5 horsepower and capable of going about 19.0 mph, or 31 kph.

To transform this into a custom golf cart for sale you can add a top, speaker, glove box, and turn signals of your choosing. However, doing so brings the price up to almost $9,400. In addition, the added weight is going to make total fuel consumption go up as well.

Nevertheless, gas golf carts get about 30 mpg on average. To fill the nearly 6-gallon tank on one of these golf carts is going to be about $30. 

Unless, of course, you are lucky enough to be living in a city such as Charleston, South Carolina, where gas is about $2.21 right now. However, even at about half the national average, the price per gallon pales in comparison to the price of electric.

When charging up an electric golf cart, the measurement is known as kilowatt-hour, or kWh is used the same way gallons are. Beyond that comparison, however, gallons and kWh are completely different in power potential as well as price.
