Take your inventiveness to the next level.

If you like inventing new gadgets, and want to make something that can be used in the real world AND be rewarded for it, then this is for you!

The new EVolocity Innovation Lab, sponsored by MeloYelo, is an opportunity for students to take their inventiveness to new heights by conceptualising and designing original features that will enhance real-life e-bike riding experiences. Selected teams will have the opportunity to develop their product and produce a MeloYelo e-bike that will be auctioned off. Proceeds will be split between the team and EVolocity.

Electric vehicles are fast.

They are fun. They are the future.

EVOLOCITY is about fast forwarding that future. It’s about stimulating innovation and growing awareness of the advantages of electric transport in a sector which may be the global growth sector of the 21st Century.

High school teams are equipped with an electric bike componentry kit. During the course of the year they design & build their own electric vehicles. At the end of the year they bring their vehicles to a motorsport park for some fun competitions. The end of year event also features demonstrations and test drives of electric bikes, go karts, motor bikes and cars, educating the public as to what is available and dispelling myths around the performance capabilities of EVs.
