Wireless charging platform Qi lands its second automaker

Ssangyong may not have the global name recognition of the Wireless Power Consortium’s first automotive partner Toyota, but adding the Korean automaker to Qi’s roster shows the technology is building momentum.

The Wireless Power Consortium’s Qi charging technology will be making its way into Korean automaker Ssangyong’s future vehicles. Ssangyong isn’t revealing which car model it will embed the wireless charging surface in, but at Mobile World Congress this week the WPC is demonstrating how the technology will be implemented in Ssangyong’s future interior console designs.

Ssangyong doesn’t have quite the international pedigree of the WPC’s first car partner Toyota, but in an automotive market that traditionally takes years to plan and develop its products, the fact that Qi is making headway with any carmakers is nothing to scoff at. While the Qi platform has seen interest from many automakers, some are going to faster than others in adopting the technology, said Peter Hoehne, VP of sales and marketing for Leggett & Platt, which designed the automotive charging system.
