Lithium battery upgrade for popular FourStar Golf Cruiser and IM4 Single Seat Golf ride-on golf buggies

LITHIUM batteries now come standard with the latest FourStar Golf Cruiser and IM4 Single Seat Golf ride-on golf buggy models available from respected Australian distributor Electric Vehicles Oceania.

The upgraded lithium-ion batteries are lighter, provide more than twice the range, are longer-lasting, quicker charging and require no maintenance compared to their old lead-acid gel counterparts… all adding up to greater peace of mind and more quality time on course.

The three-wheel FourStar Golf Cruiser and four-wheel IM4 are both single seat buggies and have long been popular with golfers who value a bit of independence on course. That has been even more so the case during the current Covid-19 pandemic with health restrictions in some jurisdictions banning shared carts and limiting group numbers.

Electric vehicle specialist Electric Vehicles Oceania (EVO) and EVOMobility is the Australian and New Zealand distributor of the two golf buggies, and also carry a range of spare parts and accessories, as well as mobility vehicles and other innovative products. EVO is based at Northmead in northwest Sydney and has Dealers throughout Australia. Contact details are below.

  1. Hello Brian,
    thanks for the articles on the Fourstar golf cruiser.
    I have just purchased the 3 wheel unit (pre-owned).
    It is 18 months old and has the AGM batteries, I easily get 2 rounds out of them, I am not sure if i will upgrade to the lithium units down the track.
    I had not heard of these units (in Australia) before purchasing, i found your article informative and it did help with my decision to purchase the scooter.
    I contacted Electric Vehicles Oceania and I must say John and ‘Bec were nothing but extremely helpful.

    I am just approaching “Senior golfer” status @ 60 and I thought I might share some comments for your other readers who may be thinking of going down the path of a ride on scooter.
    I play with a couple of regular guys and they have electric buggies, which cost half of what i paid for my 3 wheeler and they still have to walk!!
    I absolutely love it!!
    I am still a regular cycle rider, I am very comfortable with the 3 wheel setup, if you are unsure of the stability, i would recommend the 4 wheeler, you can get caught out on slopes or fast turns.
    The other complaint i found in my research was that they are quite noisy.
    This is true, the transmission reduction gears are noisy. I have experimented with transmission oils / lubricants as well as added some insulation to the cowlings and believe that i have reduced the transmission noise by 50 to 75%.
    Last weekend my playing partner commented how impressed he was with it. He was in a golf cart and while it was faster, i was never far behind @ 18Kph top speed. I asked him if he thought it was noisey and he said no it hadn’t even registered with him.
    I currently trailer the cart to my local course, however i am in the process of modifying a 3 bike carrier which will transport the scooter on longer trips, I will have to remove the batteries for this, but that is about 5 minutes each end.
    Long story short, if you are thinking of purchasing purchasing a walk behind electric buggy and you are aging, i would not hesitate to recommend these units.


  2. Hi John,
    I very much appreciate the effort you have gone to in making these personal observations about owning a FourStar Golf Cruiser. They are very informative and I’m sure will help those considering a purchase. All the best with your senior golfing career and I’m sure the ride-on FourStar will help make things as easy and fun as possible.
