AUGUSTA, Ga. (April 18, 2024) — Club Car®, global industry-leading manufacturer of small-wheel, zero-emissions vehicles, celebrated the opening of the new Club Car Appling Manufacturing Facility with tours and a ribbon-cutting ceremony. Georgia Governor Brian Kemp and First Lady Marty Kemp were joined by state and local elected officials and area business leaders to tour the new manufacturing facility, learn about the Club Car Urban vehicle, and participate in a ribbon-cutting ceremony. 

“Club Car is bringing jobs into Georgia in the growing e-mobility sector and leading the way in compact utility EV manufacturing,” said Governor Brian Kemp during the ceremony. “Their growth and this investment are a testament to the work we are doing to continue to make Georgia the number one state to do business.”

The Club Car Appling Manufacturing Facility is a 105,000 sq. ft. flexible production and warehouse storage space that Club Car opened to offer customers a better experience as demand in the United States for the Club Car Urban vehicle increases. Club Car has committed nearly $8 million in capital investments into the facility over two years. The new facility currently operates a state-of-the-art production line and can produce up to 20 vehicles per day.

“We are excited to share how our innovative vehicles are impacting commercial fleet electrification, mini-mobility and last mile delivery with the Governor and First Lady,” said Mark Wagner, Club Car President and CEO. “As a Georgia based company for more than sixty years, we are proud of the quality, safety and reliability that our team builds into every Club Car product – that’s the Club Car difference.”
