Evatran’s wireless charging technology available for Cadillac ELR; two more premium model announcements expected

29 July 2014

Evatran Group, Inc. announced that its Plugless wireless charging technology (earlier post) will soon be available on the Cadillac ELR. Evatran currently has systems that are compatible with the Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt. The Cadillac ELR is the first model to be announced in what the company expects to be three new premium model announcements by the end of 2014.

Evatran is accepting advanced orders for deliveries as soon as 1 September.

Completely eliminating the plug-in process, the Plugless Level 2 system ensures maximum electric range out of an electric vehicle by ensuring that every time the car is parked, it’s charging. The system charges as quickly as conventional corded systems and all vehicle features, such as charge-timers and phone applications, can be used seamlessly with the Plugless system. The system also has the industry’s only safety certification from Electronic Testing Laboratories (ETL).

After two years of field trials with partners such as Google, Hertz, and Duke Energy, the Plugless System was made available to individual Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt owners in early 2014.

Evatran is currently working with Oak Ridge National Lab on a three-year Department of Energy grant to integrate high power wireless charging technology into production electric vehicles.

Wireless charging for BEVs and PHEV has great potential and could become one of the favoured option in future electrified vehicles.
