  • Electric golf carts will continue to garner significant traction over conventional gasoline or diesel-driven vehicles, owing to their sustainable attributes.
  • Growing use of golf carts as a reliable means of internal transportation in exhibitions, weddings, expos, symposiums, and tradeshows is likely to complement the market growth in the years ahead.

This will remain a prominent booster to the demand for golf carts over the coming years,” says the FMI analyst.
