Questions regarding electric go-kart are numerous and among them: does it go fast, can it run for a long time? The answer to those two questions is YES.

The performances of thermic go-karts are different if we talk about a 4-stroke 270cc or 390cc, 2 strokes 100cc or 125cc. In the same way, go karts operating with 48 or 72V, 200 or 500 Amps, with lead or lithium batteries will have different performances. One thing is clear: the handling is different. The batteries make the electric go-kart heavier than a thermic kart. The important torque at low revs allows quicker response after turns.

For renting business, the real advantage is the reduced cost of maintenance, much lower with latest electric go-karts. One important thing to note when you calculate your operating margin!
