Wireless charging systems for EVs to surpass 300,000 sales by 2022

Automakers plan to release wireless-capable models in 2015-2016, report finds

BOULDER, USA: Wireless charging systems for electric vehicles (EVs) offer several advantages over conventional plug-in technology, foremost among them unparalleled convenience for EV owners.

Until recently, these systems were in the R&D and pilot stages only, but now products have begun to reach the market, and several major EV manufacturers have plans to offer models with wireless charging capability in the 2015-2016 timeframe.

“Although some in the industry remain unconvinced that wireless charging will ever be more than a small niche market, it’s clear that major automakers have concluded that this technology could be a differentiator in a crowded EV market,” says Richard Martin, editorial director with Navigant Research.

“Features once considered luxury items, such as power windows and automatic garage door openers, tend to spread, over time, across all vehicle segments – and that is likely to apply to wireless charging, as well,” said Martin.

Several developments in 2013 signaled the beginning of a new phase in this emerging market, according to the report. Bosch announced a sales and distribution agreement with Evatran, maker of the Plugless Power system, with products scheduled to reach the market in the first quarter of 2014.
