All kinds of new battery systems are being developed. However, when they will be available is another question.

Why would you need them? I've had 48 Club Cars since 2007. Never once ran out of range. They are quiet and dependable (but slow).

New electric cart has maintenance free batteries (sealed) so no filling or leaking. When I asked about life they said no longer than the standard batteries but more expensive, just less maintenance. Range never a problem unless I run at high speed for a long time (more draw). 20MPH gets me 55+ miles, 25MPH still TBD but less. We talked about lithium and the marketing life of 10 years.....yet the LIMITED warranty is 3 years....hmmmm. Their advice, always read the fine print.
