In addition to the main three, there are a host of other golf cart manufacturers that have, or have once had, their own version of golf carts. The following is a list of some additional manufactures to consider when choosing a golf cart, or similar utility vehicle, for yourself.
Current Golf Cart Manufacturers

|Cruise Car golf carts are relatively new to the scene with their own line of golf cart, shuttle, and utility vehicles. They specialize in roof-mounted solar panels that keep the batteries charged and running longer.

Past Golf Cart Manufacturers
Harley Davidson golf carts began in 1963 with their line of 3 wheel golf carts. They continued to broaden their line until they were acquired by Columbia ParCar in 1982, where their production was quickly ended.
Hyundai golf carts were around for a couple of years in the early 90’s, but were quickly discontinued. Replacement parts are somewhat difficult to come by, but if you are handy you may be able to integrate parts from other manufacturers.
Westinghouse, sometimes known as Marketeer, has some cool retro golf carts, but they’ve also got a confusing history. Westinghouse purchased Marketeer in the mid-60’s, were later sold to Nordskog in the late-70’s, then sold to Electicar in the early-90’s, then acquired by Legend in the mid-90’s, finally to be purchased by Columbia ParCar in the late-90’s.
