Momentum Dynamics is commercializing high-power inductive charging for the automotive and transportation industries, especially suitable for commercial electric, autonomous and connected vehicles.

Momentum Dynamics’ technology and competence within inductive bi-directional transmission of electrical energy and information safely through air, water and ice will fit the harsh conditions under which our customers operate. High capacity charging up to 300 kW for trucks, buses, construction equipment, industrial and marine applications will support the electrified transition.

The transaction has no significant impact on the Volvo Group’s earnings or financial position.

High efficiency wireless charging at 300+ KW is interesting for large e-vehicles (e-trucks, e-buses, -pick-ups etc) and could complement other charging methods/facilities?
