GM Tests Distance Charging

Autosphere » Fleet » GM Tests Distance Charging

7.7 kW and 11 kW systems enables park and charge flexibility and efficiency.

WiTricity, a manufacturer of wireless power transfer over distance technology, is working with General Motors to test an advanced wireless charging system prototype for electric vehicles.

The technology allows a driver to simply pull into his or her garage and automatically receive power from a source below the vehicle. The system design works across all plug-in electric vehicle platforms and can be deployed as a “floor pad” in a consumer’s garage, as well as installed under pavement to provide wireless charging in public and commercial parking lots.

“Wireless charging is a technology that our customers have told us they are interested in,” said Pamela Fletcher, GM Executive Chief Engineer–Electrified Vehicles. “By testing the WiTricity prototype system, we can ensure that wireless charging systems will comply with proposed industry standards, which benefits the entire industry and consumers.”
