WORKING towards zero emissions and sustainability need not be too hard for those who use electric cars and modes of transport and if you are thinking of buying an Electric Vehicle (EV) or trying out an E-bike or scooter or seeing Australia’s first electric ute then Zero Emissions Noosa invites you to the 2023 Noosa EV Expo & Street Fest being held this Sunday, June 18 from 10am – 2pm at Sunshine Beach Rd in Noosa Junction.  

The theme of the event this year is ‘Electrify – Moving Towards Net Zero’ and the event is a FREE family event.  

Mayor Clare Stewart said cutting emissions is everyone’s responsibility. 

“With 33 per cent of Noosa Shire emissions from transport, the EV Expo, now in its fifth year, is a great place to look, listen and learn about sustainable transport options. By using electric cars, scooters and bikes, we can reduce our carbon footprint while living and working in the Noosa Biosphere.”  

Anne Kennedy, Zero Emissions Noosa (ZEN Inc.) Chair said that there will be something for everyone at the expo this year.  

“It will showcase almost every type of EV available in Australia – from a bus to the smallest scooter.  

“It is a one-stop shop for people to look, listen and learn about the latest EV Cars at all price points, as well as vans, motorbikes, bicycles and even an electric four-door ute,” Anne said.  

“People will also be able to find out about ‘green loans’ to finance new and second-hand EVs and we have sixty-four enthusiastic exhibitors filling Sunshine Beach Road at Noosa Junction, who are keen to show, explain and answer questions about their products.”  

The event is an opportunity for people to look, listen and learn about everything EV. 

“You can test ride e-scooters and e-bikes, and also sign up to test drive an electric car on the days following the Expo,” Anne said.  

“Private EV owners will have their EVs there so you can talk to them about what it is like to own and run an EV.” 

For those wanting to find out more about the world of EVs, stop by the Speakers Stage at the Expo and hear about buying and owning an EV car, as well as experts discussing many aspects of the booming EV world.  

For anyone who wants more information, there will be the EV 101 Forum at ‘the J’ in Noosa Junction on Monday, June 19.  

To top it off, E racing teams will have their amazing vehicles on display and Noosa Junction cafes will be open, and there’ll be musicians performing and face painting for kids. 

Mayor Clare Stewart further championed the work of ZEN Inc.  

“Noosa Council proudly supports this event and congratulates the business community from Noosa Junction Association and ZEN Inc. for again supporting this year’s EV Expo & Street Fest.”
