“People are buying cars for lakeside summer homes, small farms, urban use in rural communities, industrial complexes, and city governments looking for greener transport alternatives,” says Kent Heiden, President of Midwest Golf and Turf in Michigan, an authorized Club Car dealer.
In addition to providing new and used leases, inventory finance, rental fleet financing and commercial leases and loans, DLL is also working with Club Car to explore new relationship structures and finance penetration into new territories beyond their core markets of the US, Australia, Canada and the UK.
“With an increasing focus on commercial markets, we each bring something important to the table,” says DLL’s Meinders. “Club Car offers a portfolio of competitively priced, well-designed and innovative, high-tech vehicles, and DLL provides leasing products and leasing solutions that are completely new to the market, especially at the dealer level.”
DLL also provides Club Car dealers with inventory financing lines of credit in the US, Canada and Europe, which allow dealers to offer their customers a full range of Club Car products on attractive terms.
“The collaboration with DLL goes beyond financial transactions,” says Goldberg. “We share resources, capacity and capabilities. From a competitive standpoint, it’s a level of connection I’ve not seen elsewhere.”
Meanwhile, Club Car remains the world’s leading golf car brand. To consolidate this position, Club Car will continue to invest heavily in technology services such as vehicle connectivity, smart screens and energy utilization. This raises the question of what role Club Car will play in providing urban mobility solutions.
