Club Car Trio of new vehicles is certain to draw the crowds at SALTEX 2004

Club Car, the # 1 golf car and utility vehicle manufacturer and recognised industry leaders in golf vehicle efficiency and performance will use IOG SALTEX 2004 to showcase their 3 brand new vehicles for only the second time in the UK since their launch this January.

After an exciting start to 2004 with the launch of the Precedent golf car and Carryall 294 AWD utility vehicles, Club Car has surpassed all of the company's forecasts with first quarter orders up 25 percent on the same period last year. As well as Precedent and Carryall 294, the 4 person version of Club Car's road legal Run-A-Bout vehicle will be on show for the first time.

Visitors to the Club Car stand will be warmly welcomed by amongst others Robert Drewery, Marketing Director for Europe, Africa & The Middle East who has been on hand at all the major shows this year, "we have been delighted with the reaction to the new vehicles at shows round the world this year. Everyone who comes onto the stand is keen to get a close look at both vehicles and are genuinely impressed by what they see. The Precedent and Carryall 294 are both remarkable in their own right, and we expect to be busier than ever at SALTEX 2004 as a result."

Here's a summary of what to look out for:

Precedent Golf Car


Contemporary rounded front gives the car a contemporary, sleek look

AlumiCore™ chassis is attached to a reinforced, friction-bonded underbody providing added torsion rigidity

Enhanced protection for brakes, wiring and pedals reduces the potential for damage to components

Precedent uses fewer parts than ever before making it easy to inspect, service and clean

360° Bumper™ provides wrap around impact protection and is also removable

Precedent features DuPont™ Surlyn Reflections® body panels with moulded-in colours.


Carryall 294 AWD

The Carryall 294 AWD uses IntelliTrak, which automatically senses and engages 4-wheel drive as driving conditions demand. Unlike rival vehicles there are no gears to engage and no differentials to lock. The change back to 2 WD is just as easy. Main features are:

Tow capacity of 636 kilos and a box capacity of 454 kilos.

20 hp Kubota© diesel engine capable of an impressive 25 mph top speed

A 4 point cage and 2 seat belts as standard

Bucket seats with adjustable drivers position and tilting steering wheel

More options & features available than with any other utility or 4x4 vehicle

2 year warranty offered as standard



Run-A-Bout is an NEV or Neighbourhood Electric vehicle, capable of travelling at up to 21 mph over a range of up to 33 miles on a single overnight charge. Rolled out across the UK from December 2003 the original 2 seater version is now available Europe wide. New for 2004 is a 4 seater/passenger version launching at the show.
