WiTricity’s Wireless Charging for Electric Vehicles to Debut in South Korea

  • Hyundai’s New Genesis GV60 Will Feature Wireless Charging

WiTricity, the pioneer in wireless charging, today announced that its patented technology is seeing its first availability as factory-installed equipment in a fully electric vehicle (BEV). Hyundai unveiled the Genesis GV60 in a series of videos and announcements featuring wireless charging. The Hyundai Motor Group previously demonstrated wireless charging technology at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show and has been a leader in moving the technology forward. The Genesis GV60 is the brand’s third SUV and first BEV. It will initially be available in South Korea.

WiTricity CEO, Alex Gruzen, said:

“We’re thrilled to see our technology in a new luxury EV like the GV60. This is truly a watershed moment with Hyundai at the forefront of technology solutions that enable a better driving experience. We expect it won’t be long until all car manufacturers include wireless charging for their customers.”

 

In the future, in addition to simplicity and reliability, wireless charging also has the potential to provide Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) power and dynamic charging to power vehicles in motion. And it will be indispensable for autonomous vehicles, providing the ability to refuel without human intervention.
