Electric Power for Go-Karts
Formula K’s class leading go-karts can also be supplied using an advanced 48 volt electric battery power delivery option.
In specific operating environments where there is a high sensitivity to noise and environmental considerations the use of an electric powered vehicle over a traditional Petrol powered kart is an important advantage.
Indoor operations particularly have benefited from this alternative power option, allowing the facility to offer an environment that is clear from the noise and fumes normally associated with petrol engines, whilst still offering a ride experience that is as exciting and identical in performance and versatility as a traditional engine powered vehicle.
