We are really excited to have Team Arrow coming along to the Noosa EV Expo on 21 March. Team Arrow competes in the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge. As the world's toughest and most prestigious solar car event, the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge provides teams the opportunity to design and build a vehicle to operate along a 3,000 kilometre outback route from Darwin to Adelaide powered only by the energy of the sun. This will be a wonderful opportunity for Noosa high school students with an interest in STEM subjects to chat with this passionate team of young people.
The world of personal mobility is definitely changing, with exciting electric options to suit all situations. Nowhere is this more evident than the range of electric vehicles that EMoS is bringing to the Noosa Electric Vehicle Expo on Sunday 21 March.
Company founder Wolfgang Roffman believes their range of personal mobility vehicles can respond to both traffic congestion and vehicle emissions problems, and would be a great addition to the Noosa Biosphere. “Electric cars can help with carbon emissions, but will still create congestion and parking problems,” he said.
“Our vehicles can tackle both those issues and are also fun to ride. Definitely one to check out is the WYLD e-moped chopper style electric scooter, sure to turn heads. It has a maximum range of 90km and a top speed of 50km/h, so can be ridden on road with a normal driver’s licence.”a top speed of 50km/h, so can be ridden on road with a normal driver’s licence.”
“The Viper is a 3-wheel electric vehicle with a top speed of 45 km and a range of 50-60km/h.”
“Its stable mate is the i-Tank, with a range of 80km and top speeds in 2 models at 50km/h and 70km/h.”
“Another 3-wheel model is the e-Tango, with a range of 50km and maximum speed of 50 km/h.”
“The i-Lark is a sit-on, foldable electric scooter with a maximum speed of 25km/h and a range of 35km. Under Queensland law, this vehicle can only be ridden on pathways and quiet suburban roads with a speed of 50km or less.”
Expo Coordinator Vivien Griffin said that the Expo was a great opportunity to meet with the EMoS exhibitors and find out if one of these vehicles suited your transport needs. “In the meantime you can find out more information about these vehicles at https://emos.com.au/.”

We are delighted to have the inspiring team from QUT Motorsports coming along to the Expo! QUT Motorsport is a Formula SAE team comprised of students from a diverse field of degrees, with a strong presence of engineering, business, and IT. The goal of their project is to design and manufacture a single-seater electric race car for the Formula SAE competition each year. As an electric race team,
they involve a significant number of electrical, mechatronic and software students to design, produce and manage the car's complex electrical system. Along with this, they have a heavy emphasis on mechanical engineering design including our aerodynamic, chassis and suspension subsystems. They also have a business team looking after finances, marketing, PR, sponsorship acquisition and media. The team is in the process of designing their new electric race car (QEV-4) for the 2022 season whilst continuing to push the boundaries in a range of other areas.
