It was a hat-trick of wins for the world’s favourite powered golf trolley when the latest version of the Motocaddy S1 – introduced in March – was voted ‘Trolley of the Year’ at the 2016 Foremost Golf Industry Awards last week.
Previous versions of the evergreen entry-level S1 model had won the same title in 2014 and 2015.
This year’s award from more than 950 Foremost Golf members follows record sales figures for the S1 this year – accounting for more than a third (38%) of all electric trolleys sold in the UK between March and October*. More than 90% of these sales have been with a Lithium battery. (more…)
Top-selling trolley brand Motocaddy has announced record levels of profitability for its retail partners during the first half of the year with a substantial 3% gross margin increase. This welcome financial gain for stockists of Motocaddy lines follows unprecedented demand for the new S-Series range and royalty rates remaining consistent throughout the period.
The popular brand also increased its market share, with Motocaddy trolleys accounting for 63% of all powered trolley units sold in the UK up to the end of July* – almost double the number sold by its closest rival. Sales of the latest S1 model also reached record levels, representing more than 35% of all electric trolley purchases for the same period, nearly twice as many as the next best-selling model in the domestic market.
Demand for electric trolleys sold with Lithium batteries has also reached a record high following the brand’s pioneering advertising campaigns and promotions. They accounted for more than 90% of Motocaddy trolley sales this year – compared with 34% in 2014 and 63% last year. (more…)
Motocaddy, the UK’s top-selling trolley brand, has launched two state-of-the-art videos using Computer Generated Imagery (CGI) showcasing the stylish new design and innovation on the latest award-winning S1 and the featured-packed S3 PRO models.
The slick and easy-to-watch promotional videos highlight every key feature behind the new models with a futuristic look, comparable to the forward thinking approach the brand has become known for.
“These videos reflect the Motocaddy ethos of product innovation and the use of the best technology around and demonstrates just how good the new S1 and S3 PRO models are,” said Oliver Churcher, Marketing Manager of Motocaddy.
LitePower, the leading Lithium battery replacement brand owned by Motocaddy, has launched two new look lightweight and longer lasting batteries for 2016, each offering greater compatibility across a wider range of electric trolleys on the market.
The introduction of the two models provides a larger number of powered trolley owners with three discharging options (Interconnect, Torberry or Eyelet), thereby reducing the need for additional conversion cables.
Available in Standard (2.1kg) and Extended (2.9kg) range capacity options, the new LitePower Lithium batteries are 75% lighter than Lead-acid equivalents. Compact and designed to fit any mainstream trolley through a universal connection system, the batteries also come with a new specially-developed Torberry charging unit that fully charges from empty in less than five hours and is also compatible with Motocaddy Lithium models.

Motocaddy, the brand leader in powered golf trolleys, has introduced an advanced version of its hugely popular S1 model featuring downhill speed control and the UK’s first electronic parking brake.
The new S1 DHC electric trolley incorporates the same features as the latest 2016 S1 model, but can maintain a constant speed while moving down a gradient – thanks to a special single motor that offers downhill braking coupled with an electronic parking brake.
The motor automatically adjusts its power output to control the rate of descent without the golfer having to make any adjustment to the pre-hill speed setting, while the exclusive parking brake will hold its position even on the steepest of slopes thanks to a proven solenoid braking system.
As well as the obvious advantage of greater control on undulating golf courses, the latest Motocaddy S-Series trolley is significantly lighter in weight than previous dual-motored models boasting similar functionality for demanding terrain.
“A growing number of customers were asking us for a downhill control model,” said Neil Parker, Sales Director. “It’s proved itself in markets where golf course gradients are often more severe and we believe demand here will be significant.”
The S1 DHC trolley is available with Lithium battery only at a RRP of £499.99, or £549.99 for the Extended Lithium version. For more information on all Motocaddy trolleys, bags, batteries and accessories, please visit www.motocaddy.com.
