From our story about Liberty Lake trends
What is it?
This golf cart delivers extraordinary elegance off the course as a street legal, personal transportation vehicle. Comfortable for four passengers (with 2- and 6-passenger options also available), the Sirius surprises with how much it offers in the way of smalltown driving. Equipped with LED headlights with high beams, taillights, brake lights, self-canceling turn signals with side mirror indicators, lockable glovebox and trunk — even an optional back-up camera upgrade! — all that’s left to do is drive across town to take in a summer movie at Pavillion Park.
Why is it popular?
The Sirius has become hugely popular in safe, recreation-heavy communities like Liberty Lake because Star EV decided to make it specifically for the road in addition to its role for the golf course. Manufacturers in the industry have long focused on fleet golf cart demands, which often strips vehicles down to the basics. In 2015, Star EV launched an internal program called Project Tiger with the specific goal of transforming the standard golf cart ride by focusing on features people might expect from a luxury car. This combined with one of the most innovative suspensions ever designed for a golf cart make the Sirius the best ride for both the road and the golf course.
In addition to the vehicle-like features previously mentioned, the Sirius also boasts a much longer range than the typical golf cart or personal transportation vehicle. An example of the power savings is in the LED lights, which use five times less energy than traditional halogen lights to help you travel further without worry.
The Sirius is named after the brightest star in the night sky for a reason. Star EV was serious about outshining the competition from day one, when an experienced automotive designer was brought in to work alongside Star EV engineering and manufacturing teams to make sure each step would lead to a new level of luxury styling.
