What is your preference?  Gas carts are generally faster, but much louder and jerky.  Electric slower, but quieter and smoother.  I personally like electric more, but since I like walking more than riding I don't mind slower/quieter.  

Sidenote, will EZ-GO ever get to the point of speakers in the cart?  Some of the newer carts have USB chargers and maybe a small cooler on the side, but nearly every cart I am around has a bluetooth speaker playing yacht rock.

We have an electric EZGO cart - but only use it for golf - it'll last 36 holes before recharging. I like the smoothness and simplicity of electric. Our 2008 was built before charging devices became popular. Took me about an hour for me to install a USB charger. If we lived in an area where we could do shopping etc we might need the range of a gas cart.

As a player, I hate gas carts.  Nothing like have a gas cart start moving in your backswing.  However, I've played enough mountain courses where gas is the ONLY option since the electrics would never survive the climbs.

I own 2 electric carts.  The older models (EZGO TXT) would definitely struggle up hills.  The newer cart (EZGO RXV) doesn't slow down at all up hills.  The electric RXV's also have 3 speed settings, I have mine all the way up with 14" rims and it goes 24-25mph, that's faster than any gas carts around here.  Most courses have them all set to go around 13-14 mph weather it's gas or electric.

So I prefer electric carts, It sucks having to replace the batteries, but you don't have to worry about always having enough gas.  It's easier for most public courses to run gas though.  They can just have a big tank by the maintenance shed and fill them up.  It takes a lot of infrastructure to be able to charge 100 carts at a time if they go electric.  

As for speakers, I don't see built in speakers as a stock option happening any time soon.  Maybe as a custom order but I don't see courses spending the money to have them installed.  I do have built in speaker setups on both my carts though.

I have an RXV and can't see where they would put speakers even as an option. I use a small Bluetooth speaker bought for under $20 at Walmart

There are all kinds of mounts you can get.  You can put them in the little glove boxes, you can get an under roof mount that holds the speakers and a head unit.  You can get boat speakers that you can just clip on to the roof supports.  I had a buddy that had the charging port on his cart relocated to the rear and put them on each side of the batteries under the seat. 

Personally I went with a Bazooka Party Bar attached between the two rear roof supports.
