Yamaha started as a motorcycle manufacturer, but today the company builds boats, ATVs, snowmobiles, and even golf carts.
One of the newest models developed by the Japanese company is the Yamaha G29E 48 Volt, a golf cart that comes perfectly prepared and fitted with the best engine to move smoothly across any course while also taking advantage from the technology that can be found on the entire Yamaha line-up.
Among the most notable features of the Yamaha G29E 48 Volt you will find the IntelliPower System that includes a very efficient and smooth 48-Volt motor. As most of the electric vehicles out there, the Yamaha G29E 48 Volt is also fitted with a set of regenerative brakes. Other notable features include the Genius2 system (a PDA based diagnostic and programming system) and a pack of six 8-Volt batteries.

Yamaha G29E 48 Volt
Look at any great golfer and you’ll see an athlete whose game is perfect to the smallest detail. We believe that a world-class golf car should be the same - built to the most exacting standards, and supplied with total commitment to service support.
Yamaha golf cars are designed and engineered to glide effortlessly across any course. They benefit from state-of-the art technology found across the entire Yamaha line-up: from our renowned ATVs to our unrivalled motorcycles.
No other golf car offers these levels of endurance, reliability, brand dedicated service, and pure driving pleasure. Get behind the wheel and experience it for yourself.
The G29E is too great of a car to limit itself to hauling golf clubs from one hole to the next. It’s the perfect car to turn into a one-of-a-kind special purpose vehicle that works extraordinarily well, whatever you need it to do.
Its IntelliPower System includes the most powerful, whisper quiet 48-Volt motor in the industry, state-of-the-art regenerative braking, Genius2 - a PDA based diagnostic and programming system - and six 8-Volt batteries.
The G29E is built from the ground up to be more comfortable, more responsive, more drivable, but most of all, more fun. But why take our word for it? Personal experience is the best teacher.
Low-maintenance, durable brakes
The EnduraDrive Transaxle with Internal Disc Brake Technology uses a completely enclosed disc brake system. This eliminates brake drums and shoes, needs only one brake cable, and is projected - based on extensive tests - to have an incredibly long life with ultra-low maintenance.
Industry-leading electric motor
Manufactured by Hitachi, the high-quality electric motor is efficient, whisper-quiet, and one of the most powerful in the industry. Its internal components are nickel-plated and stainless steel for corrosion resistance, and it it features its own internal solid state tachometer.
Supreme comfort seat
The industry’s largest, most comfortable seat features deep, supportive contours, which help to hold occupants in place when moving. Designed to accommodate users of all heights and sizes, it’s strengthened against sagging by plated steel inserts.
The sturdy ClimaGuard™ top, which is extended in the front and rear, offers all-round protection against sun and rain. Its 360 degree double rain channel - with no-clog water drainage system - ensures efficient drainage even in heavy rain.
Strong, lightweight chassis
Nearly 20 percent lighter and 2.5 times stronger than its predecessor, Yamaha’s HybriCore™ chassis combines an automotive, ladder-style frame with a polypropylene structural floor. Its unique design provides added strength and protects the batteries.
A stylish, car-inspired dashboard design includes four cup holders, a central storage area for personal items, six ball holders, six tee holders, and a big, easy-to-clean storage compartment on each side.
Tru-Trak II suspension
Yamaha’s maintenance free Tru-Trak II Suspension is fully independent at the front. It uses automotive-style, coil-over shock struts to minimise roll and delivers a smooth, comfortable ride.
Easy diagnostics and programming
Yamaha’s Genius 2 system lets users communicate with the G29’s motor control unit, using any common PDA with an infrared wireless connection. In addition, it enables customisation of speed and regenerative braking; stores and displays battery and vehicle data; and provides diagnostic and troubleshooting information when needed.
