Yes, but the distance you can travel on a single charge is only about half as far and you will use up more than twice the percentage of storage capacity to travel a given distance, so the 12V battery's cradle to grave lifespan will be less than half of a 6V battery's lifespan.

If you only use the cart to dive a 1/4 to the mailbox and back each day, a 3x12V pack might be marginally acceptable, but if you use the cart for much more than that us a 6x6V pack.
