Indian Electric 3 Wheeler maker Kinetic Green in partnership with Tonino Lamborghini unveiled a new range of Golf Carts under the historic Italian automotive brand Iso at EICMA 2021 in Fiera Milano Rho, Milan
The ISO DIVO Golf Carts will be available in two versions, STRADA and GOLF, and will be designed in Italy, manufactured in India, and have a global outlook for exports worldwide! The Golf Carts will be brought to market in early 2022.
The legendary brand, ISO, is being re-introduced by the young Italian entrepreneur with a world-famous surname: Ferruccio Lamborghini, a third-generation member of the Lamborghini family. To accomplish this mission, brand owner Ferruccio Lamborghini has brought together complementary know-how to establish a new trend in electric Golf Carts with Kinetic Green, a member of India’s well-known Kinetic Group, owned by the Firodia family. Ferruccio inherited his family’s love of motorcycles and started racing when very young, winning the Moto2 championships in Italy, home to many of the world’s most prominent racers. A range of Iso scooters will also be showcased at EICMA, conceptualized by Ferruccio and developed in partnership with Giken Mobility of Singapore.
Ferruccio Lamborghini comments: “I’m really enthusiastic about starting to work on this challenge in such a rapidly growing, future-oriented line of business. This project perfectly combines my desire and intention to build something new out of the history of a great Italian company with my experience and background in motors. I have been looking for strong partners, leaders in their industry, with whom to achieve the highest standards in quality, performance, and design. I planned to kick-off the project in Italy, and specifically at this special edition of EICMA, to underline the brand’s Italian tradition, because this is where the Iso brand has its roots, and this is where we will start…"
Sulajja Firodia Motwani, Founder and CEO of Kinetic Green comments: “We are excited to have the opportunity to present Indian-manufactured Electric vehicles on a global stage. The joint-venture represents a confluence of two rich automotive legacies from the house of Lamborghini and Kinetic, with diverse, complimentary skills that stretch beyond geographical frontiers to create a new force in the world of electric vehicles. This is a testament to the Indian manufacturing sector’s prowess, and its potential to lead the electric vehicle revolution on a global platform.”
The ISO DIVO golf carts will have best in class styling, performance and features including fast charging lithium-ion batteries, hydraulic brakes on all 4 wheels, independent suspension for best comfort. ISO Divo Strada series will also be presented as a “street legal” golf cart, meeting the stringent DOT approval standards in USA.
