The golf cart is QFCT’s oldest vehicle, and is used as the team’s main promotional and educational vehicle. The 1980 Club Car DS was originally modified to run on alkaline fuel cells. With sponsorship from Horizon Fuel Cell Technologies in 2014, the golf cart was converted to run off a Polymer Electrolyte Membrane (PEM) fuel cell.
While the team does not take the golf cart to any competition, new features are constantly being added to the vehicle. Recently the golf cart was converted to run off a hybrid battery / PEM fuel cell system, and can get up to a maximum of 30 km/hr. QFCT displays the golf cart at all of our promotional events, including frosh week’s EngDay, and greeting people on Homecoming Weekend.
