Vehicle: Increasing adoption of commercial turf utility vehicles

Commercial turf utility vehicles are designed for golf courses, parks, resorts, and outdoor areas. These vehicles are typically powered by electric or gas engines and carry passengers, equipment, and cargo over rough terrain. The golf cart is a small vehicle designed to transport two golfers and golf clubs with less effort than walking around a golf course or on desert roads. Industrial utility low-speed vehicles are intended for use in industrial settings, such as factories, warehouses, and logistics centers, and are commonly used to transport goods, tools, and people around large industrial facilities.

Propulsion: Rising inclination towards electric propulsion system

Electric vehicles have low standard emissions and are environmentally friendly. The factors such as low maintenance of vehicles due to an efficient motor, better performance, and no fuel required are some factors that increase the adoption of low-speed vehicles. Most LSVs are equipped with lithium-ion batteries and are electrified due to having a global charging infrastructure. The low-speed diesel engine vehicle is characterized by rated speeds of 80-120 revolutions per minute. Low-speed diesel engines can reach effective efficiencies of up to 55%. A hybrid low-speed vehicle combines a traditional combustion engine with an electric motor and battery system and is designed to offer the benefits of both types of power sources, including improved fuel efficiency and reduced emissions.

Power Output: Significance of power output for optimum performance

8-15 KW LSVs are electrically operated and projected to gain traction with advancements in electric vehicle technology. Low-power LSVs are used for regular operations that do not require much power and torque. LSVs with less than 8 KW are easy to maneuver and mostly used for 2-5 people for short-distance transport in gulf courses, resorts, gated communities, and as personal mobility vehicles. LSVs with more than 15 KW are mostly operated on smooth and flat surfaces, usually across golf courses, commercial facilities, business premises, and other areas where maximum power is required.

Application: Increasing applications in golf courses & industrial facilities

Low-speed vehicles, such as golf carts, are commonly used at airports to transport passengers and cargo within the airport premises. Low-speed vehicles are a common sight at golf courses and are used mainly for transporting golfers and their equipment around the course. Low-speed vehicles provide efficient and convenient transportation, especially for guests with mobility issues or carrying heavy luggage.

Regional Insights

The Americas region, primarily the United States and Canada, leads the Low-Speed Vehicle market owing to the incidence of a higher number of golf courses, private clubs, and gated communities. In the EMEA region, stringent regulations regarding carbon emissions and increasing awareness of electric vehicles have facilitated the adoption of Low-speed vehicles. Furthermore, Europe’s investment in green and sustainable technologies is expected to bolster market growth exponentially in the foreseeable future. APAC countries such as China, India, and Japan have started adopting LSVs in various industrial, commercial, and tourism sectors. Governments in APAC region nations support adoption of low-speed vehicles by introducing favorable policies and regulations aimed at promoting these low-emission vehicles.

Enhancing Customer Experience Through Low-Speed Vehicles in the Hospitality and Aviation Sector
June 28, 2023
Enhancing Customer Experience Through Low-Speed Vehicles in the Hospitality and Aviation Sector
From hotels and resorts to airports and theme parks, the transportation of customers plays a vital role in the overall experience they have at the establishments they visit. Despite the fact that the existence of different modes of transport available, Low-Speed Vehicles (LSVs) are becoming a popular choice in the hospitality and aviation industry to facilitate customer movement across large and sprawling properties. This blog post explores the benefits of LSVs and how they enhance the customer experience for guests while on-site.


Most LSVs are designed to move freely through confined spaces, making them ideal for ferrying guests around sprawling properties such as airport terminals, theme parks, and large resorts. These eco-friendly vehicles can easily navigate tight turns and small spaces and overcome obstacles smoothly, making them an efficient way of transporting guests from one point to another.


LSVs typically come in open-air configurations, allowing drivers the opportunity to interact more closely with passengers. As customers enjoy the ride, the drivers act as guides, providing recommendations on where to go and what to see. This personalized experience and connection with drivers add an extra layer of benefits for customers while on their journey.

Speed and Safety:

While designed as low-speed vehicles, LSVs still provide a faster mode of transportation than walking. Besides, they can reduce the amount of time guests spend on their journey while providing a safe and smooth ride. These vehicles typically have modern reclining seats, seat belts, and other vital safety features, including the use of airbags.


Sustainability is one of the significant advantages that LSVs offer. Unlike cars and other traditional transport vehicles, LSVs consume less energy and produce fewer emissions, making them an environmentally responsible option. This attribute fits into the global push for businesses and individuals to reduce carbon footprints.


LSVs possess lower capital and operating costs than conventional vehicles. Requiring less fuel, maintenance, and insurance, LSVs provide an economical solution for the hospitality industry, which has long been looking for cost-effective ways of moving guests around their properties. Incorporating LSVs into their transportation strategy has the potential to reduce operating costs, which enables the business to allocate more resources for upgrades and enhancements that could positively impact customer satisfaction.

LSVs are no longer just a niche market. They are becoming increasingly popular in many hospitality establishments and airports worldwide, offering a seamless customer experience, sustainability, and cost-effectiveness. Embedding LSVs as part of transportation strategies has now become a viable option worth considering for businesses looking to improve the customer satisfaction index while at the same time creating a sustainable reputation for their business. Adopting LSVs could be the investment that solidifies a company's position as a customer-focused and eco-friendly brand.
