ePower Trucks appointed to sell Garia utility range

Published:  01 April, 2016

Garia, the global manufacturer of luxury golf carts, has appointed Oldham-based ePower Trucks to distribute its new range of utility vehicles (UTVs).

The Danish company prides itself on unrivalled height and leg room of the road-legal Garia Utility City. It is also the first electric utility truck manufacturer to offer a lithium ion battery pack as an option, replacing the standard 8x 6V lead acid pack.

The lithium ion option significantly reduces vehicle GVW, recharge time and battery maintenance, while increasing range between charges. It has a top speed of 45kph (28mph) and a range of up to 75km (45miles) on a single charge.

Designed for urban operations, the Garia Utility City has compact dimensions of 1.31m wide and 3.23m long. It has a turning radius of just 3.25m. The flatbed has a payload of up to 740kg. Other body options include mesh cage, drop sides, tipper, and a fully enclosed van with rear and side doors.

Jerry Hanss, managing director of ePower Trucks, said: 'The Garia utility truck is a great vehicle that is ideal for last-mile deliveries and urban operations. The option of a lithium ion battery is an industry-first for this type of utility truck, further enhancing its appeal.'

The Garia Utility City is available to order from ePower Trucks.
