PowaKaddy, the world’s number one electric trolley company, has again recorded a strong sales performance in the first half of the year. The brand currently sits at a 60% share of the UK electric trolley market for combined sales across the on and off course channels, according to golf industry research specialists, Golf Datatech.
Much of this year’s early success, according to CEO David Catford, has been achieved through continued levels of innovation in the launch of new products such as the eagerly-anticipated ultra-compact C2i GPS trolley.
“With the new C2i GPS trolley, we have taken electronic trolley design to a new level, by creating the world’s most intelligent ultra-compact trolley. The response from retailers to this launch has been outstanding and we expect this to continue throughout the rest of 2019.”
PowaKaddy strengthened its ultra-compact offering earlier this year by introducing a fully integrated GPS model with optional EBS (Electronic Braking System), offering three levels of progressive braking. With the same powerful DNA as the extremely successful Compact C2i trolley, its PowaFrame® chassis folds in two simple steps to be 20% smaller than the nearest competitor, further solidifying PowaKaddy’s position as market-leader.
The fully integrated GPS system comes pre-loaded with over 38,000 golf courses worldwide and is easily accessible from the full colour display on the handle. This ultra-compact trolley also features PowaKaddy’s unique Plug ‘n’ Play™ battery system which houses the thinnest, lightest and most powerful lithium battery on the market.
PowaKaddy’s sales were also boosted by the recently released C2 Limited Edition electric trolley. Available in Classic Black or Polar White frame/trim, the Limited Edition C2 features a full colour 2.3” widescreen display, an integrated carry handle for easy transportation and an adjustable, soft touch handle to fit golfers perfectly.
Furthermore, PowaKaddy continues to innovate with the Freeway series; the all-new 2019 FW7s GPS puts powerful technology in the hands of those who demand more. With a stunning full-colour 3.5” display that delivers fast and accurate distances to the front, middle and back of the green, as well as to hazards.
The new 2019 cart bag range has also been a key factor in PowaKaddy’s success, with the re-designed Dri-Edition Bag proving particularly popular, along with the brand’s extensive range of specialist trolley accessories which includes the Umbrella Holder, Travel Cover, Bag Towel and Scorecard Holder.
