You get in touch with the after-sales department over a phone call or email and submit your query. You are directed to follow different steps to claim the warranty.

There are several reasons, under which the warranty claim is either not applicable or the warranty becomes void altogether. Some of the reasons are:

  • The driver didn’t operate the vehicle as instructed in the user’s manual;
  • The warranty period is over for the vehicle;
  • The buyer used spare parts from other manufacturers;
  • The sightseeing car is repaired and assembled without the consent of the manufacturer;
  • The sightseeing car is subjected to usage over maximum capability;
  • Damage is caused by natural disasters like earthquakes, floods, typhoons, etc.;
  • Battery damage is caused by keeping them in a low charge state for a prolonged time;
  • Sightseeing cars battery damage caused by using a Non-OEM charger.

What are the Drive Ranges of Sightseeing Cars?

Sightseeing Car Last

Sightseeing Car Last

After an electric sightseeing car is fully charged, the sightseeing car maximum travel range can drive under normal conditions (that is, until there is no electricity). Under normal load and normal speed, the range of sightseeing cars is about 80-120 km.

The following factors will directly affect the actual sightseeing car travel range:

  • Battery: a brand-new set of batteries, the actual range will reach 120km, and the battery range that has been used for a period of time will be reduced. Because the capacity of the battery will continue to decline with the use of time.
  • The actual load weight of the sightseeing car.
  • The flatness of the road, the size of the slope.
  • Frequent use of brakes while driving, more times to start the sightseeing car, and insufficient tire pressure.
  • There is no full charge, and the temperature in the environment is too low.

 

Can You Drive Sightseeing Car on a Highway?

Drive Sightseeing Car

Sightseeing Car Highway

Sightseeing vehicles fall in the class of LSVs (low-speed vehicles) as manufacturers have limited the speed to 28-30km/h, they are seriously lower than the speed requirements of normal roads. It is usually illegal to drive them around on a highway.

They are usually used on campuses or factories to drive around passengers. You should never drive a sightseeing car on a busy highway as it impedes the coming traffic.

Moreover, there are safety concerns as well. Sightseeing cars are not equipped with advanced safety features like airbags, ABS braking systems, etc. as they are not designed to run on roads. There are laws in place that prohibit using these vehicles on a busy roads or a highway.

What Types of Motors are Used in Sightseeing Car?

Sightseeing Car Motor

Sightseeing Car Motor

Electric sightseeing cars use three main types of motors:

1, Brushed high-speed motor.

The motor has the advantages of high efficiency, strong overload and climbing ability, large starting torque, and large output power after deceleration through the transmission device.

2, brushless low-speed motor.

No reducer device, with maintenance-free, noise-free advantages. However, because the controller is more complex and the starting current is relatively large, the overload climbing ability is poor.

3, Low-speed motor with the brush.

No reducer, simple structure, low cost, poor uphill starting overload capacity, and high power consumption.

Because the speed of the brushed high-speed motor is higher (3000 for the high-speed motor and 500 for the low-speed motor), it is necessary to output large torque power after deceleration through the deceleration gear device, resulting in high noise. The production process of high-speed motors is more complex and the cost is higher than that of low-speed motors.

When buying sightseeing cars, choose the vehicles that are suitable for your own area according to your own needs.

How to Charge Your Sightseeing Car Vehicles?

Sightseeing Car Charger

The battery pack of sightseeing car vehicles should be regularly charged to prevent a fully drained or dead battery.
If at your facility, the car is running for hours bearing passengers, it is suitable to have it charged every night to keep it powered for the next day.
The battery releases hydrogen when it is charged, so it can be charged only where the air is well ventilated

Always follow these precautions when charging:

  • Make sure the key is off and the body is stable.
  • Connect the cord to the outlet on your sightseeing car vehicle
  • Always connect the charging cord to the vehicle‘s charge receptacle first, and then plug the cord into a wall receptacle to minimize the risk of sparking
  • After the charger is connected, the red indicator on the charger will flash. The charger will self-inspect the level of the battery charge left.
  • After self-inspection is complete, a green indicator starts flashing, and the charging procedure starts.
  • When the battery is fully charged, the green indicator will stop flashing, and the charger will stop charging automatically.

 

How to Operate a Sightseeing Car?

Sightseeing Car Operate

Sightseeing Car Operate

Execute these pre-operation measures every time before you operate a sightseeing car:

  • Checking the accelerator pedal and brake pedal are working;
  • Checking the Indicators and brake/tail lights are working;
  • Checking the tire conditions and air pressure;
  • Battery and cables are in suitable condition;
  • Turn the power key to ON position with the Forward/Reverse switch on the Neutral position;
  • With the brake pedal applied, turn the direction switch to the desired direction;
  • Do not drive at speeds exceeding 30 km/h;
  • Avoid sharp turns on inclines and at high speeds. It may cause the vehicle to roll over;
  • Reduce speed on wet and slippery surfaces and in turns;
  • To stop the vehicle, release the accelerator pedal completely and brake to a complete stop;
  • Engage the parking brake; turn the key off, recharge if required.

 

How Are Sightseeing Cars Packed For Delivery?

Sightseeing Car Packaging

This is usually done by the manufacturer, supplier, or freight forwarder. The vehicles are chained in place with their handbrakes engaged. You should inspect the vehicles for damages when you receive them.

What is The Procedure for Buy Sightseeing Cars?

Sightseeing  Car Buying Process

How Much Time Does it Take to Deliver Sightseeing Cars to You?

Sightseeing Car Delivery

Sightseeing Car Delivery

If you are ordering the sightseeing vehicles from across the borders, they are mainly shipped via ocean.

The shipping time depends on the size of the order placed and your location. For shipping from China to the USA, it takes 30-40 days on average as ships move a lot slower than planes.

Additional arrangements are required for ocean freight and ships to move slower depending upon the ocean wind conditions and to save fuel.

Furthermore, port congestion, customs delays, and bad weather conditions may further delay your ocean freight.

Can You Ask the Manufacturer to Customize the Sightseeing Car?

Sightseeing Cars Design

Sightseeing Cars Design

Yes, many competitive manufacturers can design sightseeing cars according to the sample provided by you. They can add additional features as requested. For example a roof solar panel, a stereo system, enhanced dome lighting, custom colors, custom interior, adjustable steering column, windshield washer, adding heater/fan, etc.

You get in touch with the design time at the time when you are placing the order and submit your request. For extra features and custom enhancements, you are charged accordingly.

Due to safety limitations, not all design-changing requests are entertained. It is always subjected to approval from the design and testing team.

What Shipping Plan Works Best for Shipping Sightseeing Cars in Bulk?

Shipping Sightseeing Cars in Bulk

Shipping Sightseeing Cars in Bulk

Once the total weight of any shipment becomes more than 500kg, ocean freight is the cheapest option. If your manufacturer has to ship your sightseeing vehicles from across the continent, you should choose shipping via ocean for many reasons.

One reason is that ocean freight offers more capacity and value – one container can hold 8-10 average-sized vehicles. The heavy payload is delivered in one trip so you don’t have to wait for shipping in intervals.

If no ocean route is available between your manufacturer and your country, you should consider shipping via railway.

Rail transit has benefits when you are shipping in bulk. The average cost of rail transit for 1 ton is 95$ which makes it cheaper than any other form of transportation via land.

What to Do If You Need a Spare Part For Your Sightseeing Car?

Spare Part For Your Sightseeing Car

Spare Part For Your Sightseeing Car

Spare parts like headlights, seats, steering panels, motors, batteries, brake shoes, cables, etc. are available in the local market and are not very hard to find.

You should always use OEM products with your vehicles to maintain the safety they have to offer. Using low-quality or aftermarket spare parts can void the warranty and can lead to problems with the operation of the vehicle.

For original spare parts, you should visit the dealership. Otherwise, you need to submit a query to the manufacturer regarding the parts you need. Your request is processed and the parts are shipped if they are available.

How to Inspect The Batteries of Your Sightseeing Car?

Sightseeing Car Battery

Sightseeing Car Battery

The battery pack must be inspected daily to ensure the uninterrupted operation of your sightseeing vehicle.
