SOLAR ELECTRIC VEHICLES NOW AVAILABLE!
Varley electric Vehicles.
division of the Varley Group introduces Australia’s first range of Solar
Electric vehicles, Golf Carts, people movers and resort vehicles.
Varley are the exclusive
importers and distributors of EMC vehicles and have recently become the first
Australian company to offer a range of Solar charged electric golf carts,
security vehicles, laundry hospitality, housekeeping and electric
After several years of product
development and real world field testing Varley Electric Vehicles are offering
the range of electric vehicles as part of a mainstream product line-up, not as
an experimental vehicle range.
Using an innovative ‘active
charging process’, EMC’s solar vehicles offer a incredible increase in range,
use less mains-power at charging time and offer an increased battery life. The
vehicles are super economical to run and to maintain.
How does this
Energy Collection – Active
All solar powered vehicles rely
on both solar and battery energy to maintain a steady flow of
EMC’s solar charged vehicles are
built with integrated or roof-mounted solar panels which collect solar energy
whenever the vehicle is in the sunshine and stores it for when the sky is
This energy is used to actively
and continuously charge the vehicles ‘Trojan’ batteries. Continuous charging
prevents the batteries from sulphating and limits the sulphur build-up which is
the main cause of battery failure.
Along with the active charging
which maintains a constant and reliable electricity flow, EMC’s solar vehicles
use ‘regenerative braking’ technology to reduce the overall level of energy
required by the vehicle.
This technology captures the
energy usually lost in the braking process in conventional vehicles, and
recycles it back into the cells of the batteries to recharge
EMC solar charged vehicles do
not need to be mains charged as often, or for as long as conventional electric
vehicles. When a mains charge is required, the vehicle is charged using a
small, lightweight charger that is integrated in to the vehicle so it's simply
a matter of plugging the vehicle in to any normal 10 amp power outlet.
(Note: larger EMC solar electric
vehicles use an off board charging system)
With this deal struck, EMC is in
a strong position to provide a wide range of both solar and electric vehicles
to the marketplace to corporations, government departments and industry and
Whilst excited to offer solar
charged vehicles, EMC also offers a wide range of conventionally charged
special purpose electric vehicles. EMC has an impressive customer list
including government and corporates, BHP Billiton, Australian Customs Service,
NSW Prisons, Maritime Defence, Brisbane International Airport, the
Victorian Police Department, NSW Prisons, Royal Flying Doctors, Airlines and
major Shopping Centres including Westfield’s.
EMC laundry & maintenance
vehicles, utility vehicles, catering & beverage vehicles are used across
Australia in the hospitality industry, factories, building sites, resorts,
theme parks and airports.
A wide range of solar charged
vehicles is now available to the market. The current range of conventional
electric vehicles including utilities, pantecs, vans, people movers, resort
vehicles can be ordered with conventional charging or solar technology.
