In collaboration with Valmet Automotive, Garia is proud to introduce The Garia LSV Concept Car, a street-legal version of The Garia Golf Car.An LSV is a Low Speed Vehicle allowed to travel on public roads in the U.S. not accessible to regular golf carts or neighborhood electric vehicles.
The Garia is the ultimate European luxury golf car. Manufactured at the factory that also produces the Porsche Boxster and Porsche Cayman, The Garia features include a built-in refrigerator, hand-stitched seats, high-performance drive components and a Formula 1 inspired front suspension.
“The Garia LSV is ideal for shorter trips and recreational purposes, and with The Garia LSV it is possible to drive directly from your home to, for example, the golf course. This is something many people will appreciate, and it makes The Garia LSV a unique product” says Anders Lynge, Creative Director of Garia A/S and designer of The Garia.
The Garia LSV is fitted with street-legal safety equipment such as seatbelts, license plate, and side mirrors. “The development of an LSV version of The Garia Golf Car opens up for versatile use of the vehicle and is therefore a natural part of the product development of Garia A/S”, says Mr. Lynge.
The Garia LSV will be introduced in the U.S. in the summer 2010. In the EU, The Garia LSV will be introduced as non-street legal. For further information on EU sales, please contact Sales Manager Nicolai Andersen, firstname.lastname@example.org
The Garia LSV presented at the Geneva International Motor Show is a concept electric car. The Garia LSV Concept Car will be presented on the stand of Valmet Automotive alongside three other vehicles, the electrical vehicle THINK City, the hybrid vehicle Fisker Karma, and the electrical concept vehicle EVA. The stand number of Valmet Automotive is 1245, Hall 1.
