Contact Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha golfcart 2 Seater Catalogue, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha golfcart, Yamaha electric car, 						Yamaha battery car

Reason 1: Yamaha DNA

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

The golf car with the bloodlines of a champion. Deep inside beats the heart of Yamaha, and etched in its muscle memory is everything we've learned from our motorcycles, ATV's, and watercraft. Hard-wired into its genetics is one overriding, irrepressible instinct: that driving a Yamaha ought to be fun!

Reason 2: Best Front & Rear Bumpers in the Industry

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

You know and we know: things happen out there. So we made our bumpers with thicker walls and textured surfaces to withstand mishaps and they're the same height front and rear. They release air on impact; in fact, they're 5 mph rated. And if worse comes to worst, you can replace them by removing only two bolts.


Reason 3: Yamaha Built Battery Charger

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

We're the only manufacturer that designs and builds our own chargers. It's compact and light (12lbs), uses less power out of the wall, and doesn't hum. Its solid state Field Effect Transistor (FET) design is completely electronic, not transformer-based like traditional chargers. It communicates and stores charging information with the motor control unit, and it won't overcharge.

Reason 4: HybriCore Chassis

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

How do you make a chassis nearly 20% lighter and 2.5 times stronger? We mated an automotive, ladder-style, 100% robotically welded frame, protected by an 18-step paint process, with a polypropylene structural floor. Integrated into the floor, the battery box surrounds the batteries, eliminating a corrosion point. A self-contained pedal box gives the pedals top and bottom protection from dirt, debris, and stray golf tees.


Reason 5: Maintenance-Free Ramp-Style Clutch

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

It's an industry exclusive! Our ATV inspired clutch gives better response and greater hill climbing power (27% better than Club Car), it never needs grease, its internal components last longer, and its unitized construction lets you get it on and off with one bolt.

Reason 6: Maintenance Free Cast Aluminum Accelerator Pedal

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Its made of die-cast aluminum with no plastic parts. It won't corrode, and it needs no grease. Its throttle position sensor is an industry exclusive solid state sensor that needs no adjustment - ever - since it has no moving parts! You can inspect it and its cable from above, so you don't have to jack it up to check it out. Its designed to accommodate all drivers - tall and short - with optimum foot position, and its textured surface helps keep the foot on the pedal.


Reason 7: Color Matched Wheel, Seat, and Top

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

The wheel, the seat surface, and the ClimaGuard Top are all the same color, because we believe it's the little things that make a design a success. What's more, the wheel is color compatible with each of the three wheel cover options and with all body colors.

Reason 8: Low Cost of Ownership

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

By the book, The Cruise offers the lowest maintenance costs inthe industry: less then Club Car, less than E-Z-Go. We guarantee it!




Reason 9: Flexible, Durable Body Panels

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Our panels are made of custom formulated thermoplastic olefin with superior flexibility, durability, and cold resistance. They lock together and mount with fewer mounting points for better removability; they're robotically painted with a two part topcoat of high luster, automotive grade polyurethane paint that's color matched to the body panel; and they have twice the protection and fade resistance of previous models.

Reason 10: Drive Center Superior Ergonomics

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Every element of the driver's space - from the dash to the pedals, from the steering wheel to the armrests, from the seat to the top - was designed to provide optimum comfort and ease of use for drivers of different sizes.






Reason 11: Best Occupant Space of any Golf Car

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Best window of entry and exit. Best leg space in the industry. Best foot space, rear body to pedal. Improved steering height and position. Improved seat height and position. Improved headroom. There's no better space to occupy, and we've got the numbers to prove it!

Reason 12: Exclusive Yamaha Genius2 PDA Diagnostics

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

There's a reason we call it "Genius." A common PDA with an infrared wireless connection allows for communication with The Cruise's motor control unit. In addition, it enables customization of the speed and regenerative braking, using 25 setting to match your course and terrain. It stores and displays battery and vehicle data such as AMP hours, miles, and MCU serial numbers, as well as diagnostic and troubleshooting information, helping you get peak performance and maximum profitability from your Yamaha Cruise!


Reason 13: Largest Bag Well / Bag Holder

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

It's the biggest bag holder in the industry, but it has an especially low load-unload height and a wide, easy to use strap clip to hold two tournament size bags securely in place while protecting body panels from scratches. It's made of scuff resistant plastic, textured to help keep bags from slipping, and it comes with built-in drainage holes to keep bags dry and make cleaning easy.

Reason 14: One Piece Fender Wells with Splash Guard

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

The Cruise's inner fenders are one piece, seamless plastic designed to keep delicate mechanical and electrical components from getting wet. The rear wells include integrated mud flaps to keep your customer's golf bags from being splashed on, so everything important is protected.




Reason 15: Most Powerful 48-Volt Motor in the Industry

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Manufactured by Hitachi, our electronic motor is high quality, highly efficient, whisper quiet, and generates 3.5 horsepower, which beats anyone else's in the business! Its internal components are nickel-plated and stainless steel for corrosion resistance, and it even has its own internal solit state tachometer.

Reason 16: Sentry Wraparound Protection System

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Your car comes with 360 degree protection against scrapes, scratches, and bumps. Polypropylene side sills protect against side impacts in front of and behind the tires, and our energy absorbing bumpers release air on impact to protect the body and frame. Hazards can approach from any angle. You're covered with the Cruise!


Reason 17: Maintenance Free Cast Aluminum Brake Pedal

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

The cast aluminum brake pedal has no need for grease, and makes no "drumming" sound when it's released, owing, of course, to the quality of parts surrounding it. It works with a single, Teflon coated cable that reduces the need for adjusting. It has an integrated 3-position parking brake; it's textured and positioned to provide comfortable operation for all drivers.

Reason 18: 100% Greaseless Chassis

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

No other golf car can make this claim. Because Yamaha uses higher quality parts, like sealed bearings, automotive grade tie rods and steering components, our chassis is virtually maintenance free! How much time did you spend on grease jobs last year? Wipe that number off the slate. Greasing golf cars is over.







Reason 19: Largest Sweater Basket in the Industry

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

It's 39% larger than our previous sweater basket, formed of heavy gauge, vinyl coated wire that won't rust or corrode and won't snag sweaters. It's designed to be easily cleaned and won't collect dirt or debris. And it comes with an integrated sand rake holder, standard. Who would have thought a sweater basket could generate so much excitement? Someone who cares about his sweater, that's who!

Reason 20: Built-In Transaxle Impact Protection

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

The cast-aluminum transaxle case is designed with integrated impact protection. You don't need a skid plate to fend off the hazards that come from underneath. Yamaha's hardened case can take care of itself!










Reason 21: New, Exciting Paint Colors

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

First Yamaha reformulated the paint to give it twice the weatherability and fade resistance. Yamaha then decided on seven lustrous colors, including four brilliant metallics. We then put on a two-part topcoat using automotive grade polyurethane finish and we then apply it robotically to give it a smooth, automotive grade finish that would be a credit to the finest European sports sedans.

Reason 22: Easy to Remove, Durable One Piece Floor Mat

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

The point was to make it easy to clean. So Yamaha made it one piece, covering the floorboard and footrest area, and its made from rubber to provide cushioned comfort for the occupants.


Reason 23: Superior Quality Parts

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Yamaha engineers decided early on that to end up with a truly great golf car, you have to begin with great parts. As luck would have it, we work for Yamaha! And Yamaha's parts are held to the industry's most exacting standards and most rigorous quality testing. Put enough superior parts together in exactly the right way, and voila, we have a superior golf car.

Reason 24: Factory Authorized Service

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Just because we're setting you up with the most dependable, least maintenance intensive golf car in the business doesn't mean we won't be there for you. We have a network of factory authorized service technicians to make sure your service needs are met.


Reason 25: Maintenance Free Rack and Pinion Steering

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Based on a double ended helical rack-and-pinion design, this is a steering system once found only in high performance sports cars. We revised the steering ratio for a more nimble and responsive feel, put it in a stronger, die cast housing, and made it permanently greased with sealed bearings and no grease fittings on tie rod ends. Easy to drive, and even easier to maintain.

Reason 26: Easy Grip Steering Wheel

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

It's not just that it's thick, contoured, and textured for easy gripping. It's not even that we integrated four tee holders, a scorecard holder, and a pencil holder into the design. It's the way we carefully positioned the pencil holder to avoid scratched wrists and torn golf gloves. That's what we mean by attention to detail.




Reason 27: EZ Removable Floorboard Access Panel

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

When you need to get at the brake or accelerator pedals we make it easy for you. When the panel is in place, its integrated, high-quality pedal brushes keep debris and foreign objects and things like tees from falling through the cracks and gumming up the works.

Reason 28: Tru-Trak II Fully Independent Front Suspension

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

No other golf car has a suspension like this! Yamaha designed a maintenance free suspension using automotive style, coil-over-shock struts to minimize roll and deliver a smooth, comfortable ride.



Reason 29: Yamaha Cruise Accessories

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Beautifully integrated into our remarkable sweater basket - the largest in the industry - are the optional accessories that make The Cruise the perfect car for you! We paid painstaking attention to the design, the usability, and the installability of these rear mounted accessories, with pre-drilled mounting holes. And with toolless installation whereever possible. Customizing has never been easier!

Reason 30: Premium Tread Tires

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Check out the tread pattern on our four-ply tires! It's designed to provide superior on-course performance while minimizing turf compaction. The perfect combination of drivability and damage avoidance.


Reason 31: Four 12-Volt Battery Configuration

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Instead of six 8-volt batteries, we use four 12-volt batteries. It's more efficient and less expensive to maintain, and it also has fewer cables and terminal connectors. What's more, it's 44 pounds lighter than the old configuration! All the power with a lot less trouble.

Reason 32: Improved Mileage and Charge Distance

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

On our electric models, we set out to beat our own best charge and mileage distances. When we were done, we did some checking and found out we beat everybody else's distances too! Nobody takes you farther for less.


Reason 33: ClimaGuard Top with Dual Gutters

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Our top is wider and extends farther in the front for maximum occupant protection, and it's longer in the rear to give maximum protection without interfering with the clubs. It has the only 360 degree double rain channel in the industry, and its integrated water drain system has an exclusive clog-proof design. It's built for rattle-free stability and has integrated grab handles as well as universal mounting points for information holders and GPS systems. So who's afraid of a little rain?

Reason 34: Dependable Nationwide Service Centres

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

We have a stable and dependable nationwide service centres who can help you with all your purchasing and service needs. The network is growing steadily as new and well-qualified dealers sign on.


Reason 35: Comfortable, Contoured Seat Back

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

The cushion is made of supple foam bonded to a seamless, durable, fabric-backed cover. The seat back is one contoured piece, and the contours are designed to support the occupants and promote good posture. This is the most comfortable seat in the industry, and that's all there is to it.

Reason 36: Yamaha Built Motor Control Unit

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

If we're going to be the only manufacturer building our own motor control unit, then we figured we might as well make ours the most advanced in the industry. It communicates with the battery charger - also Yamaha built - and with the Yamaha Genius2 diagnostic and programming system. Its rollaway protection slows it down and lets you know if the brake isn't properly engaged, it ensures smooth starts to avoid turf damage, and its solid state electronics include a microprocessor with high-efficiency switching. Golf cars don't come any smarter!


Reason 37: Most Responsible Turning Radius

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

We trimmed 50 centimeters off our turning radius. It's not the tightest turning radius in the industry, but we think it's the most responsible one. It's calculated to perform geometrically optimal tight turns that won't damage your turf.

Reason 38: Easy to Clean Cup Holders

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

You know that really gross stuff that collects in the bottom of cup holders? We don't have that! Our cup holders are built with drain holes that keep liquids and debris from accumulating. And they're removable, so cleaning them is a snap.


Reason 39: Improved Ground Clearance

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

That awful grinding sound under the car is the skid plate striking a high spot. It's heard less often with The Cruise, because we improved our ground clearance by 12% to ride right over the rough areas. That's one reason we don't need a skid plate.

Reason 40: Largest Contoured Seat in the Industry

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Deep, supportive contours are intended to help hold occupants in place while the car is moving. Designed to accomodate occupants of all different heights and sizes, it's made of pure, supple foam bonded to a seamless, fabric backed vinylcover, and the polypropylene seat base is strengthened with plated steel inserts. Won't sag or warp,stands up to repeated pressure washings, and remains the most comfortable seat in the business,despite daily abuse.



Reason 41: Easy to Maintain In-Line Battery Layout

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

By arranging the batteries in a straight line, we simplified the wiring and connections, we reduced the number of hold-downs, and we made watering and maintenance easier. Such a simple thing. Why hasn't anybody else thought of it?

Reason 42: Large Comfortable Armrest

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Exactly how important is an armrest? Depends on whether it's done right. Ours is strong, made of steel reinforced, glass-filled polypropylene. It's larger and wider than previous models, but it doesn't interfere with entry or exit. It's substantial enough to provide comfort and security for the occupants - and if that's not important, what is?.



Reason 43: 25% Fewer Parts

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

In three years of developing it, we figured out how to build our golf car with fewer parts. In the bargain, we also got more reliability, easier maintenance, less weight, fewer things to go wrong - all you could hope for in a golf car. Call it "the magic of concurrent engineering."

Reason 44: Integrated Electrical Component Protection

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

Integrated water channels divert water away from the batteries and electrical connections. The battery box is designed to keep debris and dirt from entering the compartment from below. Key electrical components are high and to the rear for maximum moisture protection and minimum interaction with battery acid. And all components are sealed and have marine grade waterproof connectors. We're serious about protecting our electrical components. After all, without them, what do you have?




Reason 45: Regenerative Braking System

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

If the parking brake is not properly engaged, the car will slowly inch its way downhill while it sounds an audible alarm to notify you and let you catch it. It extends battery life and rounds per charge by converting the motor into a generator to recharge the battery while the car proceeds at a regulated speed down hills, slowly and safely. What could be better than a brake that thinks for itself?

Reason 46: IntelliPower System

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

With its advanced Yamaha built motor control unit and battery charger, its regenerative braking system, and its Genius2 motor control programming and diagnostics, the IntelliPower System is simply the smartest drive system ever built. Running a powerful 48-volt motor with full circle communication between all components, this system does everything but watch where it's going. We had to leave some fun for the driver, didn't we?


Reason 47: Automotive Style Dash

Yamaha golf cart, Yamaha golfcar, Yamaha electric car, Yamaha battery car, golf buggies

The auto industry spent a hundred years getting this right, so we put their principles to work for you. We gave it four cup holders to hold different size cups; a center storage area for wallets, cell phones, and personal items; six ball holders; six tee holders; and a big, easy to clean storage compartment on each side.
