Famed American golf-cart manufacturer Club Car has opened a new factory in Augusta, Georgia. Located in the unincorporated community of Appling, the facility is a response to increasing US demand for Club Car products. The factory, which represents an $8 million capital investment, will manufacture the brand’s Urban line of small electric commercial vehicles. It was officially kicked into gear on Thursday, April 18, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony featuring Georgia Governor Brian Kemp.

Club Car’s Urban XR and Urban LSV may look like overgrown groundskeeper’s trucks, but they were engineered for more versatile duty: The company pitches the Urban line as “eco-friendly, crash-tested vehicles that help you get the job done.” The most affordable Urban model, the off-road-only XR, has a top speed of 19 mph and an MSRP of just under $27,000. The more expensive LSV is road-legal in some states and capable of 25 mph. Both versions can carry a payload of up to 2,204 pounds and were developed with industrial spaces and last-mile delivery in mind. Either can be ordered with a pickup bed or a van box.

Club Car says the Appling facility employs 40 people and is able to build up to 20 Urban vehicles per day.
