What Does YDRE Stand For On Yamaha Golf Cart Models

Yamaha YDRE
If you have a Yamaha golf cart and the model is called a YDRE you might want to know what the YDRE part of the name stands for.

Starting in 2007 Yamaha released a new model with an improved suspension. The YDRE models have an working, automobile-like strut configuration; in which it keeps the front wheels as vertical as possible at all times. This newer design, offers better handling and ride quality than a leaf spring suspension and or a fixed front axle used by some golf cart manufacturers. The rear suspension of the Yamaha YDRE has a dual coilover shock, live axle/swingarm setup for more support for added weight.

The YDRE in the name stands for “Yamaha The Drive Electric”. It is also known as a G29 model.
