Electric carts are not a new item, but they are slowly gaining steam in the North American market. We have featured a number of them in the past year and recently a brand that is quite popular across the pond has made its way to the United States. Enter MotoCaddy with their full lineup of offerings and today we are focusing on their “middle entry” the M5 GPS DHC Electric Caddy.
We will briefly dive into the tech specs before moving to the THP TV video where we show the MotoCaddy M5 in action. The first thing to mention is the GPS built right into the handlebar. It comes pre-loaded with 40,000 courses so no loading up from a computer the day before the round or anything like that. This crystal clear touch screen also includes a clock, round timer, ability to keep score and a fun feature in the shot distance measurement.
The screen doesn’t stop there however, as (and we show this in the video), you can connect the Motocaddy M5 to their mobile app and set notifications so your texts, emails and a large array of alerts will appear on the screen. It even has built in WiFi for course and system updates, which going off memory, I do not think we have seen in any electric caddy we have tested to date.
One area not touched on in the video is the Motocaddy M5 DHC technology. In a nutshell this means no matter what type of terrain you are on, going uphill or downhill, the speed remains constant. Think of it like cruise control on the car and it works incredibly well.
Let’s jump into the video and show off some of the features as well as how easy or hard it is to fold up and store in the trunk after the round.
The Motocaddy M5 electric caddy is available now and comes with a price tag of $1399. Although Budget Golf has them in stock and the coupon on the right hand side of the page for 15% off, does actually work for their electric carts.
