Electric Vehicles & Street Legal Golf Carts Help Curb Rising Gas Prices

GAINESVILLE, FL – April 11, 2011 – (Motor Sports Newswire) – With gas prices hovering just under $4 a gallon, finding alternative ways to get around is not just economical: It’s becoming a necessity.

But sometimes, you may not need a full-size vehicle to get you from point A to point B. This Florida company has the solution that won’t break your bank.

Costing only 2 cents per mile to operate, Road Rat Motors’ line of electric vehicles for sale don’t pollute the environment and can even be fitted with solar panels to further reduce electricity use.

“Using street legal golf carts or low-speed vehicles just makes sense these days,” said Justin Jackrel, owner of Road Rat Motors. “With some of the models costing as little as 1 cent per mile to operate and the current tax rebate of 10% of the total purchase price, you can’t go wrong!”

Most of these “citEcar” vehicles are street legal on roads under 35 mph. They also have a new line of fully enclosed electric buses that can be equipped with air conditioning and can hold up to 29 passengers.

Golf carts are also becoming an economical alternative to revving up your gas-guzzling SUV for your short trips to the grocery store or to the gym. Road Rat Motors’ street legal golf carts make sense with the rising gas prices, and in most areas, are safe on roads under 35 mph.

Road Rat Motors is the worldwide leader in affordable karting, with the average cost for racing go karts and other vehicles at $1,300. These could cost you up to $4,000 at other retailers. Formally GatorMoto, Road Rat Motors has been a leader in motor scooters and go kart sales for more than 10 years. It provides affordable options to the racing and carting community, bringing as many new racers to the sport as possible. They also have a full selection of kart parts, apparel and safety equipment for children and adults.

  1. With the price of gas these days it’s no wonder that golf communities like The Villages Fl are creating lots of interest amoung active adults. The Villages has 90 miles of golf cart paths and around 50,000 golf carts. You can park your car and never have to drive it again because everything is within golf cart range. Why not test drive The Villages (no pun intended) by renting a villa to see if the lifestyle is for you. You can find by owner rentals on many sites such as VillagesHomes4Rent.com!
