In 2013 Motocaddy brought out the original M Series compact trolleys that were the smallest folding electric trolleys in the market at the time, as we showed in our Motocaddy M1 Pro DHC and M3 Pro review.
Now five years later Motocaddy has relaunched the range with a new design and a new M5 Connect model.
The frame of all the models has been redesigned as Chairman David Wells explains:
The 2018 M-Series designs are remarkably compact, with a folded footprint 11% smaller than the nearest competitor, ideal for golfers with limited car boot and storage space. Allowing for smaller, lighter batteries has enabled us to create a new streamlined, cutting-edge design, plus the battery can be charged while still on board to make life a lot easier.
The aluminium frames features a simple folding handle and a front wheel that tucks under the frames to create a more compact shape than before.
Advances in technology mean that the lithium battery is a third smaller than competitor batteries and twice as powerful thanks to a next generation 28V high power system.
This powers a 230 watt motor which also has an integrated safety cut-out system and is controlled by the usual dial on the soft touch handle.
Motocaddy Launch M5 Connect Trolley
The stand out model of the 2018 M Series range is the new M5 Connect which uses Bluetooth to connect the screen on the handle to the Motocaddy GPS app so you can see distances on your trolley.
The app has distance data on 40,000 courses worldwide and can also show alerts for texts, calls, emails and social posts, as we tested in our Motocaddy S5 Connect review.
You can order your M5 Connect in either a Black or Alpine white frame with the blue trim for £599.99 with the standard lithium battery, or upgrade to an extended battery for an extra £50.
Motocaddy Update M1 and M3 Trolleys
The 2018 versions of the M1 and M3 models are also based on the new frame as the M5 Connect and come with the same Easilock bag system to secure the base of your Motocaddy bag without a strap.
The new M1 model comes in Black or Alpine with red trim for £499.99 and features a new look LCD screen. It also comes as M1 DHC (Down Hill Control) version in Graphite for an extra £50 that will manage the speed of your Motocaddy when going down slopes.
For the same price as the M1 DHC you can opt for the lime trim of the M3 Pro that also features Adjustable Distance Control, CartLock security pin code and distance measurement functions for shots, round and the life of the trolley.
All models are due to be in UK stores from July 2018.
