Tonino Lamborghini, in partnership with Indian electric three-wheeler manufacturer Kinetic Green, has unveiled a new range of Iso Divo electric golf carts at EICMA 2021.
This partnership aims to resurrect the now-defunct 'Iso' brand by establishing a new trend in electric golf carts. The Iso Divo golf carts will be designed in Italy with a global outlook and manufactured in India. These electric golf carts will have the best-in-class styling, performance and features, including fast-charging lithium-ion batteries, hydraulic brakes on all four wheels along with independent suspension all-around.
The company is also pursuing DOT approval to make the golf carts street legal in the US. The electric golf carts will be available in two versions, Strada and Golf, with market entry expected in early 2022. Under the joint venture, the companies plan to develop a series of smart carts from 2-seater to 8-seater options for golf, tourism, hospitality and personal use.
Ferruccio Lamborghini, Brand Owner, Tonino Lamborghini, said, "I'm really enthusiastic about starting to work on this challenge in such a rapidly growing, future-oriented line of business. This project perfectly combines my desire and intention to build something new out of the history of a great Italian company with my experience and background in motors. I have been looking for strong partners, leaders in their industry with whom to achieve the highest standards in quality, performance and design. I planned to kick-off the project in Italy, and specifically at this special edition of EICMA, to underline the brand's Italian tradition because this is where the Iso brand has its roots, and this is where we will start."
Adding to it, Sulajja Firodia Motwani, Founder and CEO, Kinetic Green, said, "We are excited to have the opportunity to present Indian-manufactured electric vehicles on a global stage. The joint venture represents a confluence of two rich automotive legacies from the house of Lamborghini and Kinetic, with diverse, complementary skills that stretch beyond geographical frontiers to create a new force in the world of electric vehicles. This is a testament to the Indian manufacturing sector's prowess and its potential to lead the electric vehicle revolution on a global platform." (MT)
