Electric Golf Cart or Electric Bike Rickshaw? | Comparing Benefits of E Bike Rickshaw to E Golf Cart

Hey everyone, I'm Dustin. I have nearly 20 years of experience in the bike and e-bike industry, and today I'm going to answer the question, electric golf cart or electric tricycle rickshaw, which is better? Stick around.

All right, so today I'm going to answer the question, an electric golf cart or an electric tricycle rickshaw, which is better? Before I get into it, hit subscribe below.

All right, so I'm seeing electric bikes, electric everything's getting crazy right now. Blowing up, and tons of people buying it. But in a lot of communities, I'm seeing a lot of electric golf carts, four-passenger, six-passenger, and I'm also seeing a lot of electric bikes. And here is the new sixthreezero electric tricycle rickshaw, actually the electric bike rickshaw. And I'm seeing a lot of families love the electric golf carts because they can use those to get around their community, they can use those to go to local restaurants, things of that nature. And I think all of them are great. I think our electric bike, and rickshaw are great. So let's discuss which is better. Why would you want one or the other?

So let's talk about electric golf carts. Now the price can range. I think brand new for a four-seater, you're probably looking at about $8,000 to $10,000. You might be able to get it used for less. And I've seen actually on those, top speeds are 25 miles an hour roughly factory. Then I've seen modifications where you can increase the speed to like 30-something. And the range I think varies. The range I don't know, but I want to say it's probably 10 to 15 miles. The range isn't huge on those, maybe 20 miles. But you do have to probably charge it nightly if you're using it frequently. And again, I think it has a lot to do with how fast are you going, and how big is the load. From the electric golf carts I've seen, it's not going to tell you exact miles as well. It works a lot like an e-bike in that you have an indicator that tells you how much you have left on your battery.

Now flipping that to an e-bike rickshaw like this, the top speed is going to be 20 miles an hour if you're just using the throttle. Faster than that if you want to use the pedal assist and pedal, could be up to 28 miles an hour, but that's going to be challenging if you have a load on the back. On this particular e-bike rickshaw, your max passenger count is going to be four, so that would be three children or two adults. And the range actually could be up to 60 miles because this is a huge battery for an e-bike. This is a 21 amp hour, 48-volt battery. Again, that's going to depend on the weight and the riders and how often you're using the throttle or using the pedal assist.

But let's look at these things one to one. Now of something of this nature, today for the e-bike rickshaw, you're looking at about $3,000 to $4,000. And like I said, for the electric golf cart, you're looking for $8,000 to $10,000, now that's new. So it's double the price, more than double the price if you're looking at an electric golf cart. And I'm talking about $8,000 to $10,000 just for a four-passenger, if you want to go up to a six-passenger, you're talking about $15,000 brand new. But just to compare apples to apples, this is maxed four-passenger, we'll talk about the four-passenger. So the electric golf cart's going to be double the price.

The other thing, so the range. You're going to get more range out of this e-bike than you're going to get out of the golf cart. That's just going to be, I think because it's simpler, it's going to weigh less. You're going to have a bigger battery on the rickshaw for the size versus what you'd have in the electric golf cart. The other thing now is the top speeds. You're going to get more consistency out of the top speed in the electric golf cart, meaning we're going to get 25 miles an hour, you just hit a gas pedal. The beauty obviously of a rickshaw is you can pedal if you so choose, and you can get exercise, which in some people's minds may be a benefit or may not be a benefit. Now you're going to have a little more storage on the electric golf cart, don't get me wrong. So if you want to put things like in the back, you have a little storage compartment. But you will have a storage compartment under here, and we will be developing more add-ons for ours as well.

Now, I think the biggest thing, aside from the price is also going to be the storage, right? Golf cart, you're going to most likely need to keep that in a garage. You could keep it outdoors, but if you're paying $15,000 for something, you're going to want to take care of it. So you're going to have to dedicate a garage spot to it, or it's going to be in your driveway. The electric trike is no longer than a typical tricycle. So this can fit in a garage a lot easier than an electric golf cart can. So for me if you're going to primarily use your electric transportation to get around a small community, go to the pool, do things like that, I love the electric rickshaw for stuff like that. I use this all the time. I put my three kids on the back, we bring their towels, we bring floaties, we go to the local pool, and it's super easy.

The one thing also that I will say is parking, right? So you get an electric golf cart, that's great. They're so much fun. Parking is no different in an electric golf cart than it is in a car. You still have to have a parking spot. Now some communities may have dedicated electric cart parking. But you go to a store, you're parking it there. You drive this thing to the store, you're putting it in the bike rack, and you're easily finding a parking spot. That's kind of the beauty, right? You go to the local farmer's market or you go down to your paddle tennis courts or your tennis courts and the lots are full on your golf cart. So be it, you got to find a spot somewhere with the electric rickshaw, again, you're parking up on the sidewalk, you're putting it in the bike rack. It's so much easier.

And to me, that's kind of in the spirit of why you would want something like that to do your community transportation, right? You want it to be easy, you want to be able to park it. You still want to bring passengers with you. And by the way, you're saving a lot of money. Now, I have a slightly biased opinion, but I favor the electric bike rickshaw, for small community-based riding. To go to your pool, to do things around the community, as I said, go to your paddle tennis court, to take your kids to school even. Again, school parking is another thing. If you're parents at home picking your kids up at school with the electric trike, you can go in the direction that bikes are going. So it allows you to cut through the line. It's a much easier pickup. If you're an electric golf cart, typically, unless your community has those paths that are geared to get you to school, or you're riding on sidewalks, which you really shouldn't do with a golf cart, this is going to get you there faster. And again, you don't have to find a parking spot.

So I like the electric golf cart if you want something open air to ride all the way around town and to run errands and do groceries and use it as a form of transportation, but you want electric, I think the golf carts are good for that. But if you want to stick to the community riding and make it about local school, local pickups, taking your kids or taking an adult, going to the beach, things like that. And it's consumed to the paths and more localized, I love, love, love the rickshaw and think it provides so many more advantages, including cost savings and way easier storage, and way easier parking.
