WiTricity is working with GM to test an advanced wireless charging system prototype for electric vehicles.
The Drive 11 park-and-charge system is designed for maximum efficiency and can work with all plug-in electric vehicle platforms.
It can also be installed as a floor pad in a garage, and under pavement to provide wireless charging in public and commercial parking lots.
Testing will focus on wireless charging systems at 7.7 and 11kW charge rates, capable of charging both battery electric vehicles (BEVs) and extended range electric vehicles (EREVs), and is intended to comply with standards proposed by SAE International’s J2954 Committee.
