Motocaddy S1 electric golf trolley gets a sleek update, including cable-free battery, reduced size, increased power and DHC model for 2022.
Since first launching in 2006, Motocaddy’s flagship S1 has been the most popular electric trolley model globally, so it’s no wonder they have spent more than two years ensuring the new model is packed with improvements over its predecessor while remaining at the same price (from £599), making the new trolley incredible value for money.

The world’s biggest-selling electric trolley brand have completely revamped their entry-level model, while a Downhill Control (DHC) model ensures your trolley remains stable and keeps an even pace when going down hills.
Both trolleys are designed to be incredibly easy-to-use and include the brand’s quickest-ever one-step folding system, allowing golfers to be ready in seconds.
Bolstered by next generation high power and reliable 28V electronics (as used in the M-Series), the S1 combines modern design with a powerful, whisper-quiet 230W motor, a super-lightweight lithium battery and upgraded visuals including a full-colour LCD widescreen display, viewable in all weather conditions.
The sporty design also features Motocaddy’s state-of-the-art ‘Click ‘N’ Connect’ battery technology, which not only provides cable-free connectivity, but also automatically disconnects the battery when folded and offers a quick-access port to allow charging without removal.

In a revolutionary step for the S-Series, S1 also boasts slimline ambidextrous sporty wheels that invert for compact transportation and storage, making the new trolleys 16% smaller than the previous models.
“The new S1 has taken more than two years to develop and follows considerable investment in consumer research to ensure that it meets the needs of modern golfers,” said Motocaddy Marketing Director, Oliver Churcher.

“The S1 has been the world’s most popular trolley over the past 15-years and the new model looks set to redefine what an entry-level electric trolley should offer. This is undoubtedly the easiest-to-use trolley we’ve ever developed, which combined with the impressive new technological features such as the cable-free battery, widescreen display and the one-step folding system; takes the 2022 S1 to a completely new level.”
Other standout features include nine speed settings, with speed indicator and battery monitor located on the LCD widescreen, a USB charging port, Adjustable Distance Control (up to 45 yards), oversize tubing for ultimate handle stability, and the brand’s innovative Easilock bag-to-trolley connection system.
As well as the Automatic Downhill Control, the S1 DHC features all-terrain wheels and an electronic parking brake.
The Motocaddy S1 and S1 DHC go on sale in March and are available in graphite/red. The S1 costs £599.99 (standard lithium battery) and £649.99 (extended lithium battery), with the S1 DHC priced at £649.99 and £699.99 respectively.
