ICON Superstores can be found across the nation, and they are of particular interest to golf cart enthusiasts because they carry the very latest and best electric vehicles on the market. We sat down with ICON Superstore owner Ty Gaydish to learn more about the stores, their products, and what makes them the best.
Gaydish is the owner of several stores: the ICON Superstore of Bluffton, the ICON Superstore of SC, the ICON Superstore of Carolina Beach, and the ICON Superstore of Hardeeville. With four superstores under his belt, it only makes sense for him to tell us about the products offered by the stores.
According to Gaydish, ICON’s mission is “to be the leader in LSV/neighbor electric vehicles, connecting families to their neighbors and communities.” The atmosphere in the ICON Superstores is customer-focused and fun. ICON‘s representatives want to make sure that they provide customers with the most accurate information while guiding them to make a purchase that will be best for their specific needs—and they want to have fun while doing it!
As Gaydish elaborated, “We are here to be of service and help them with any questions about LSVs/NEVs, battery technology, options, etc. If they choose to buy from us, that’s a bonus.” So you won’t get any sneaky salespeople here—just representatives who aim to provide you with the very best information so you can make an informed, educated purchasing decision.
ICON Product Line
ICON carries a number of products; among the most popular are the I20 golf model, which is power by Toyota motor and controllers. This model is equipped with just about anything you can think of a golf car needing: a cooler, a ball/club cleaner, sand/seed bottles, and golf bag holders.
Additionally, ICON offers the I20L lifted golf model. These cars can reach up to 28 miles per hour and come equipped with four wheel disc brakes, an independent front suspension, coil over shocks, USB chargers, Trojan batteries, and metallic paint so you’ll be sure to catch some eyes while carting through town.
Other popular models are the I40 and I40L. These models are also powered by Toyota motor and controllers. They are four-seat cars, so you’ll be able to bring the kids along—or go for a night cruise with a few buddies.
Twelve-inch DOT tires are available on the I40, along with fold-down rear seats. Like the I20, the I40 can reach speeds of 28 miles per hour and come equipped with four wheel disc brakes, an independent front suspension, coil over shocks (in the lifted model), USB chargers, Trojan batteries, and metallic paint.
Next up are the I60 and I60L, which are also powered by Toyota motor and controllers. These models offer drivers six seats so they can be sure to leave no man behind. Twelve-inch DOT tires are available, as well as fold-down rear seats.
Like the I20 and I40 models, the I60 can go up to 28 miles per hour and are equipped with four wheel disc brakes, an independent front suspension, coil over shocks (on lifted models), USB chargers, Trojan batteries, and metallic paint. These are the ideal models to consider if you have a large family and plan on carting through town on the regular.
The I20U and I20UL are ICON’s utility-line models. They can seat two people and proudly carry Trojan batteries. As with the other models, they can go up to 28 miles per hour, and they feature four wheel coil over shock suspension, four wheel hydraulic disc brakes, 12-inch aluminum wheels, and a full line of accessory upgrades and parts.
The Future of ICON
As you can see, ICON has a wealth of golf cars to offer customers—there’s a model for every desire and need. As far as future goals, Gaydish stated, “We are allowing the demand and customers to dictate our growth. Based on the current growth, we should see 10-plus stores in the southeast over the next three years.”
That’s some serious growth! Southeasteners, it sounds like soon there will be an ICON Superstore near you—if there isn’t one already.
If you’re in the market for a golf cart and aren’t sure where to go to find out more, we would suggest giving ICON Superstore a call. The environments is low pressure, focused more on providing customers with accurate information versus “getting the sale.”
Also, ICON provides the best value for LSV/NEV cars, meaning they can give customers more features and greater performance than other leading brands—and all of that for a fraction of the cost.
To wrap things up, Gaydish noted, “Our customers are customers for life and part of our family. They will be treated like that before and after they purchase a vehicle.”
