Cushman Titan Leverages Golf Car Technology
By Chad Elmore07 August 2018
Textron Specialized Vehicles Inc. introduced a new model of its Cushman Titan XD industrial burden carrier with a 48v ac electric drivetrain and IntelliBrake technology.
For more than a decade, Textron Specialized Vehicles has led the golf industry in ac electric-vehicle technology under its E-Z-Go brand of golf cars, and now it is expanding its use of this technology in its Cushman line of industrial vehicles.
The combination of ac power and IntelliBrake technology enables the Titan XD to offer superior performance with greater energy efficiency, longer battery life between charges, and regenerative braking, said the company. IntelliBrake automatically slows vehicles on steep grades and engages the parking brake whenever the vehicle stops.
The updated vehicle is also equipped with new standard dashboard features, including a speed control switch that limits speed while transporting material, USB outlet, headlights, brake lights and state-of-charge meter.
The Titan XD is available in two- and four-passenger options.
