Latest update: 1 Sep 2017
Under the Plugless brand name Evatran sells its wireless charging system. The company currently offers products that work with a range of different models, including the Tesla Model S, Nissan LEAF, and Chevy Volt.
Inductive charging, in which a magnetic field is created by running electricity through a coil, is the system Evatran wireless uses. One coil is mounted to the vehicle’s underside and the other is placed on the ground.
The coil that sits on the ground must be connected to a power source. It can be hardwired or plug in (NEMA 6-30 or 14-50). Plugless will initially be available in two specifications: a 7.2-kilowatt version and a 3.3-kW version. The company say Plugless will be available on 80% of the Evs in North America by the end of 2017.
