Garia Launches Street Legal Electrical Golf Car at the Geneva
In collaboration with Valmet Automotive, Garia is proud to introduce The Garia LSV Concept Car, a street legal version of The Garia Golf Car.

An LSV is a Low Speed Vehicle allowed to travel on public roads in the U.S. not accessible to regular golf carts or neighborhood electric vehicles.

“An LSV is ideal for shorter trips and recreational purposes, and with The Garia LSV it is possible to drive directly from your home to, for example, the golf course. This is something many people will appreciate, and it makes The Garia LSV a unique product” says Anders Lynge, Creative Director of Garia A/S and designer of The Garia.

The Garia LSV is fitted with street legal safety equipment such as seatbelts, license plate, and side mirrors.

The Garia LSV will be introduced in the U.S. in the summer 2010. In the EU, The Garia LSV will be introduced as non-street legal. For further information on EU sales, please contact Sales Manager Nicolai Andersen,

The Garia LSV Concept Car will be presented on the stand of Valmet Automotive alongside three other vehicles, the electrical vehicle THINK City, the hybrid vehicle Fisker Karma, and the electrical concept vehicle EVA. The stand number of Valmet Automotive is 1245, Hall 1.

The Geneva International Motor Show is one of the most attractive motor shows in the world and ranks among the “Top 5 Worldwide” of the most important automobile exhibitions, alongside those in Detroit, Frankfurt, Paris, and Tokyo. It is the only one in Europe which takes place every year. It is the 80th edition of The Geneva International Motor Show.

Twenty four hours after our story on the Mercedes-Benz F 800 and its resemblance to the BMW CS Concept, we return with another….dilemma. The Italian automaker Alfa Romeo will unveil their latest concept, dubbed Bertone, at the Geneva Motor Show.
Shortly after the first photos hit the web, a new heated discussion has begun. Some automotive fans are bringing up some similarities between the Bertone Concept and BMW’s Vision EfficientDynamics concept unveiled at the Frankfurt Auto Show last September.
We will refrain from jumping to a conclusion since once again, we don’t have any information on how far back the Bertone project goes and this could be a simple coincidence.
