The California Roadster is a classic vintage style 2-seater automotive by ACG that comes with an extremely powerful 17.5 HP AC motor and six 8V batteries along with a SEVCON controller. This mighty yet elegant machine can reach a top speed of 25 mph and its front hydraulic disc brakes assure you of safety even when you’re breezing through town. The California Roadster is the perfect example of a car that does not compromise on style or luxury while providing the best technology available.
Whether you are going to the golf course, the market, or simply out to enjoy a beautiful day, the California Roadster® is your elegant choice for affordable luxury.
ACG, Inc. has revolutionized the Electric Vehicle Industry by re-inventing the increasingly popular Golf and Community Car platform from the ground up.
The California Roadster® was built with purpose and reliability in mind.
Our dual purpose platform allows you to transform your California Roadster® from a community vehicle to being the envy of everyone on the golf course with an easy to use hand- release golf bag attachment.
American Custom Golf Cars, Inc. has also certified the California Roadster® with Federal Government (NHTSA/DOT) so that the California Roadster® can be offered as a “Neighborhood Electric Vehicle” (NEV), which qualifies it for street use.
The quality of the California Roadster® begins in the engineering of the car from the ground up.
The California Roadster® is built using completely new parts.
The frames are made from rugged and corrosion-proof all aluminum I-beams.
The California Roadster® uses a long lasting 48-volt system to ensure maximum range using industry leading Traction batteries managed by the SEVCON computerized controller.
The Hi-output 17.5 peak horsepower AC motor is powerful enough to move you and your passengers at speeds up to 25 miles per hour and yet it is efficient enough to deliver a higher range than the industry average.
The California Roadster® also features an on-board 12-volt converter that gives you an in-dash power source to power you cell phone or laptop computer.
For added safety, the California Roadster® has been outfitted with standard headlights, brake lights, turn signals, horn and is the only golf cart to feature a standard 4-wheel braking system, which includes the use of front wheel hydraulic disk brakes.
With all of the standard features that have been engineered into the California Roadster®, ACG, Inc. has reset the bar in the Custom Electric Vehicle industry to a level that has never before been seen and that other companies can only hope to come close to.
All ACG Cars since 2014 Model Year are now covered by exclusive 48-month / unlimited mileage Powertrain Warranty*.
