Plugless Power Wireless EV Charging Due April 2013

Plugless EV charging is coming our way.

Evatran signed an agreement with SPX Service Solutions (SPX) to distribute and install Plugless Power wireless electric vehicle (EV) charging systems.

These systems will be available starting April 2013 for Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt owners.

No word yet on availability on Ford or Toyota products.

The system has been tested within the framework of a pilot project at the LADWP, at Google, at the Hertz Corporation, Duke Energy, and the Clemson University International Center for Automotive Research (CU-ICAR) in Greenville, S.C.

The wireless system requires station installation in customers’ homes, as well as the installation of an adapter onto the undercarriage of the EV. SPX says it will be launching a program to provide both parts of the installation process in the comfort of the EV owner’s own home.

“Our goal has always been to provide EV owners with a completely convenient, hassle-free charging experience,” said Rebecca Hough, Evatran Chief Operating Officer. “When we decided to launch an aftermarket product we knew we needed an equally convenient installation process for our customers. Service Solutions committing to in-home vehicle installation in parallel with station installation is a big win for us. Our customers can look forward to a quick, easy, well-managed installation process without leaving the comfort of their own homes.”

SPX said it will be selling the wireless charging systems through both its Web site and over-the-phone sales channels.

SPX currently has a network of over 900 certified and trained installation and service staff across the country, and says it has distributed over 13,000 charge stations, including the Power Xpress, Voltec, ChargePoint, Blink and GE WattStation brands.

The company’s first wireless charging product line will be sold under the Plugless Power brand.
