Hello Forum Members - Got another great review for your guys on a new high tech “Electric” LSV / Golf Cart vehicle. There’s a fair amount of RV owners who pull their golf cart or Toad behind their rig to get around when they tech their destination who will be interested in this great little vehicle called Atomic S2. The Atomic sells for around the same money as a golf cart yet this car comes equipped with a full automotive quality cab with air conditioning, heat, power steering, power brakes, radio, electric windows, locks, lights signals and much more.

For who are interested in technical aspects, this in-depth article covers the motor, controller, down-converter, air conditioner, heater and even check the current draw at different speed.

Click on this link for the story;

Enjoy - Mike Mas

Probably as safe as driving a motorbike or motorcycle. With these type vehicles, any crash is dangerous.

I get the impression it’s meant to be used as a golf cart within communities. Probably safer than a standard golf cart although I see some golf carts have seat belts now. Neat idea. Probably work for some.

Death wish???. Meh. A lot of us drive bikes and scooters on the road. We spend a lot of time in Europe. People tend to be a little less afraid of living there. [emoticon].

Nice but I doubt it will be street legal in most states.

They should have made it the same size as Smart and looking closer to basic Suzuki Sidekick.

He Mentioned The Villages in Florida. The Villages have special Golf Cart roads/pathways. The kicker is, Golf Carts by ordinance are limited to 23 mph. This vehicle is capable of 35 mph and I doubt the Villages would allow them on Golf Cart paths. AND as someone who has been going to the Villages for 20 years, I would NEVER drive this type vehicle on the regular Villages roads. It is dangerous enough in a regular car with how those people drive. Doug

I am sure there is a niche market for this. Won't replace standard toads or golf carts but I am sure there are folks out there who view this as the ideal solution to a problem. If you were to be in one place that didn't require a car for long periods of time, something like that might be for you. People drive golf carts around our neighborhood all the time. Even to the grocery store.
