Written Review

I decided to review the Boomerbuggy just for fun after covering some of Daymak’s electric bikes because it looked cool! Unfortunately, I don’t have a lot of experience to draw from so my thoughts here are somewhat limited. What I saw and experienced was a thoughtfully engineered personal mobility vehicle that would protect against wind, rain and even snow. The tires had nice tread that seemed off-road capable but I believe the system is only two wheel drive (rear wheel drive) and intended for roads and plowed surfaces. There’s a wiper for the windshield, a motorized sprayer with fluid just like a car! and there’s an electric heater in the cabin (that will drain the battery quickly if used). You can even roll the side windows down if it gets hot out or you want to wave to your friends :D

The Boomerbuggy comes standard with a large and very heavy Sealed Lead Acid battery pack but you can upgrade to Lithium-ion for extended range. Given the hefty footprint of this thing, nearly 500 pounds, it takes a lot of energy to get moving so Daymak advertises a modest 24 mile range which sounds about right. It can accommodate riders and gear weighing up to 450 pounds and there was plenty of room inside the cabin for me (I’m 5’9″ weighing in at 135 lbs). It felt safe and I appreciated the faux leather bucket seat with head rest.

At the end of the day, you could spend a lot less for the standard Boomerbuggy which doesn’t have the fiberglass body… and that version does work with an umbrella attachment (as shown in the video) but it’s not going to protect you from the elements the same way and it doesn’t look nearly as cool. Both light electric vehicles top out around 10 miles per hour and have an automatic brake feature where the unit slows and stops itself if you let go of the throttle. To help extend range and improve efficiency, this auto-braking is also regenerative so the system recoups electric energy sending a small percentage back to the battery pack.

If you’re the type of person who loves light electric vehicles and thinks this could be a cool way to get around the neighborhood and even explore some stores and community areas (if you’re disabled) I think it could be a blast and attract a lot of positive attention. It’s narrow enough to fit through standard doors but fairly tall and colorful so you should stand out to cars and other cyclists and pedestrians. There are no airbags and the safety features are limited but there is a seat belt! I’d be careful driving on the street but the LED lights, turn signals and hazards should help keep you visible.

Pros:

  • I love nice this thing is, the inside is comfortable and very well protected against wind, rain and other elements
  • You can upgrade to an MP3 player and radio to add a bit of fun just like a real car or motorcycle
  • Comfortable bucket seat with head rest in case you get rear ended, the front and rear lights, blinkers and mirrors help to improve safety
  • You get forward and reverse (the right trigger is forward, the left is reverse) and the bar gives you several hand positions for comfort and to help you stabilize yourself getting in and out or driving over bumpy terrain
  • No license or insurance required, the unit can be operated inside and is capable of going very slowly by changing the speed, it also has a backup beeping sound
  • It’s meant to go on the sidewalk (and it does fit!) but you can also go on the road if a sidewalk is not available

Cons:

  • Very expensive, it costs much more than the uncovered version and almost as much as a decent used car… but it does have lots of cool features, you can opt for an uncovered version with an umbrella for protection (shown in the video review)
  • Extremely heavy, including the battery pack, might be difficult to service yourself without some kind of help and I’m not sure who I would call?
  • Shipping may cost ~$500 if you’re in a regular city in North America but can cost more if you’re isolated

I am an African and will like the continent to patronize to the use of this device. One feels comfortable when he uses the machine. It will be of importance to especially the physically challenged individuals who cannot walk. I hope that this device will be available in Africa and especially the country that I am hailing from, Ghana. i hope my comment will be read

Hi Daniel! I’d love it if more of these light electric vehicles made it to your part of the world… and I imagine they will someday. Depending on where you live it may be possible to have a unit shipped but this company (Daymak) is in Canada so that would cost a lot of money to do. There are other products made in China that could be less expensive and closer. What do you like to do for fun in Ghana? I had a friend from Kenya years ago and he was very friendly.

Hi Daniel, This device could be successful in Africa. However I think that it would need larger wheels and a wider track to cope with unpaved roads.

Hiya does it cost more to have heater and Bluetooth radio speakers

Hi Richard! That would be a great question for Daymak, I get the feeling they will cut deals based on what package you buy and my guess is that you do pay more for upgrades like paint, Bluetooth radio and maybe even the heater. Here’s their website contact page.
