Ludacris Gets Electric Golf Cart for His Wife, He Tests Out the Mercedes EQS 580

Ludacris likes to drive fast and furious. As a Mercedes-Benz Brand Ambassador, the actor and rapper got a chance to test out the new Mercedes EQS 580 4MATIC. But to travel around his domain, he bought an electric golf cart for him and the family.

On October 24, the rapper took it to social media and showed a video of a “special delivery,” as in a new gift for his wife. We’re talking about a 2021 E-Z-GO Express L6 Elite golf cart, big enough for his entire family. Ludacris and his wife, model Eudoxie Mbouguiengue, share two daughters, and he wrote “Starting to Feel Like Disney World around here. Or Better Yet KARMAS WORLD.”

The all-electric golf cart has enough space for six people. The vehicle features a welded steel with powder-coat protection frame and leaf springs with hydraulic shock absorbers. It comes with 13.1 horsepower and is able to reach a speed of approximately 16.5 mph (26.5 kph), just perfect for casual rides around your estate (that's if you have a backyard big enough for a golf cart, of course).

While this is a vehicle that could take Ludacris and his family all around the terrain around the house, the Fast and Furious actor tested the Mercedes EQS 580 4MATIC, fit for longer drives. He was as impressed as the rest of us with the 56-inch Hyperscreen. "It feels like I’m about to play a video game, but it’s not a video game, it’s real life,” he joked.

Another thing Ludacris noted about the electric Mercedes sedan is that its “dopest part” is that the passenger could listen or watch something else than the driver.

Coming with two electric motors, one on each axle, and all-wheel drive, the 580 4MATIC has an EPA range estimate of 340 miles (547 kilometers), much lower than the WLTP figures of 447 miles (720 kilometers). With 515 horsepower, it can hit a top speed of 130 mph (209 kph) right after getting from a standstill to 62 mph (0-100 kph) in 4.3 seconds.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to see him actually drive the car (or the golf cart) in the two-video set he uploaded on Instagram, but he surely looked impressed. And looked great in it too. We can’t wait to see the pictures of the family enjoying the E-Z-Go golf cart though.
