Suzuki has a better design than this : https://www.marutisuzuki.com/wagonr . They can store a couple of suitcases at back also after passenger room.

Wagon R a real good design to go electric but this is very urban design and not suited for north America. Toyota tried Scion in this direction.

$16k-$17k for golf carts?!?!?.....
Yes, that's with minimal options. Crazy. Everyone drives around in them down there, there are about 80,000 registered golf carts in The Villages. When I go to visit the in-laws we rent a golf cart, the dealership sells and rents - so I get to see the window sticker on all the one's they are selling. Always amazes me that you can buy a base Spark for less. I've never been in a Spark, but I have no doubts it is a million times more sophisticated than a $17k golf cart.

The Spark is a real car you could take on the freeway, and way more torque and HP than you need, easily cruise at 80 MPH.. I think it packs around 300 torques, but do not quote me on that google it...

Golf carts in The Villages is restricted to 21 mph, though most have it tweaked a bit. Nothing worse than having a rental with the 21 mph max and have some 90 year old pass you in his "fast" golf cart!

I think that 300 torques would equate to about 950nm ;).

I'm thinking there is some kind of financial loop hole and convenience "thing" that has residents at these ummm.."places to go and retire" that make $16k-$17k for a fancified golf cart seem reasonable?...I guess?...


Well consider me learned.....:eek::fall:
