E-Z-GO is well known for its business and operational excellence, receiving the coveted Shingo Prize for Operational Excellence in 2009. That same year, the company’s Augusta facility was named one of Industry Week magazine’s top 10 manufacturing plants in North America. E-Z-GO facilities are ISO 9001 and ISO 14001-certified.
E-Z-GO is also renowned as a leader in electric-vehicle technology, from the exclusive, highly energy-efficient AC Drive system used in the RXV® golf-car platform; to Exceed Hybrid Technology™, which supplements an E-Z-GO electric vehicle’s electric drivetrain with a small gas-powered generator for up to 150 miles of range between charges; to the PowerFilm Solar Panel, which recharges our RXV and TXT® electric vehicles on the fly, increasing range between charges and reducing the amount of electricity required “from the grid” to recharge the vehicles.
E-Z-GO became part of Textron in 1960. This global, multi-industry company leverages its global network of aircraft, defense, industrial and finance businesses to provide customers with innovative solutions and services. Textron is known around the world for its powerful brands such as Bell Helicopter, Cessna Aircraft Company, Jacobsen, Kautex, Lycoming, E-Z-GO, Greenlee, and Textron Systems.
Today, more than 57 years after the first E-Z-GO vehicle was built in that sweltering one-room shop, E-Z-GO still has that single belief – that it exists to build vehicles and services that exceed the expectations of the customer, better than any other offering on the market. It is the drive to sustain and improve that position – to offer an unparalleled combination of world-class products, advanced technology, manufacturing expertise, and extraordinary service – that leads E-Z-GO to cover new ground.
