With the eNVy® being the new kid on the block, we’ve created quite the buzz! Anytime you create something that rocks the industry like our high-end golf cart concept has, there will be questions.
Just in case you need to know more about America’s newest Crossover, here are some of the most popular FAQs:
HOW MANY BATTERIES DOES THE eNVy USE?
The eNVy uses four 12 volt batteries. We recommend using Interstate Batteries.
DOES THE eNVy COME WITH A WATERING KIT?
Yes, all eNVy's come standard with an easy to use watering kit. This kit prevents overfilling and the spilling of any battery acid.
WHAT'S THE BEST WATER TO USE WHEN REFILLING MY BATTERIES?
Only use distilled water. All other water will damage the battery or could cause harm.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I ADD WATER TO MY BATTERIES?
We recommend at least once a month with normal use. The best way to gauge if water is needed is to look at the white indicator tabs on each battery cell. If the white is at the bottom, then it is time to refill. You should add water right after fully charging the batteries. Adding the water to close before the charge can cause boilovers and damage the battery cells.
IS IT OK IF I LEAVE MY UNIT PLUGGED IN?
Yes. Leaving the batteries charging will not damage them.
HOW LONG CAN IT TAKE TO FULLY CHARGE THE BATTERIES?
It can take anywhere between 10-13 hours to fully charge the batteries from dead. It is recommended to not let the batteries get below 80% of their capacity. Continuously deeply discharging the batteries will shorten their lifespan.
HOW CAN I MAINTAIN THE LIFESPAN OF MY BATTERIES?
The batteries on the eNVy perform best when recharged fully and often. Recharge the batteries daily or after each use of the vehicle. Note: do not change the battery model in the machine.
In order to gain the highest performance:
Fully charge the batteries prior to the first use, and keep the batteries fully charged to keep them healthy.
The batteries will not perform to their fullest capacity until they have been discharged up to 50% and recharged 20-30 times.
Never discharge the batteries more than 80% of their capacity. Deeply discharging the batteries will shorten their lifespan.
Discharged batteries can freeze in freezing temperatures. Do not use, charge, or load test a frozen battery as it could explode.
Keep batteries fully charged when not in use.
If you observe ice in the cells, or the case is swollen or split, allow the battery to warm up before testing or charging.
Do not charge batteries at temperatures of 110° F or higher.
Range may change depending on terrain, trail conditions, temperature, and driving habits.
If the electrolyte level is low, add distilled water up to a maximum of 1/4" below the bottom of the vent wells. Do not overfill.
Adding too much electrolyte may cause a boil-over during charging. 1/4" over the plates is sufficient. (It's impossible to overfill with the watering kit included.)
ARE THE ROOF, WINDSHIELD AND FRONT BUMPER STANDARD FEATURES?
No, these do not come standard, but can be added.
IS THERE A WAY TO TRACK THE CHARGING ON MY PHONE?
Yes! The Charger Connect App from Lester is available. For Android click here. For Apple click here.
WHAT IS THE EXPECTED MILEAGE FOR THE eNVy?
At the beginning of eNVy’s battery life, you can get anywhere from 13-17 miles. After the batteries have been properly charged and maintained for 30+ cycles you can get around 20 miles. However, mileage on electric vehicles is susceptible to a variety of things such as temperature, terrain, driving style, and load.
This ultra-quiet, brushless A/C electric neighborhood vehicle is sweeping the nation. It is also the perfect quiet vehicle to get you down the golf course, or to work on the farm! The new eNVy is available at a dealer near you! For more information check out our website at https://ridewithenvy.com!
