DMS, InductEV partner on high-power wireless charging availability

DMS will manufacture InductEV's hardware, including in-ground and under-vehicle inductive pads and more.

Detroit Manufacturing Systems (DMS) and InductEV reached an agreement where DMS, a large-scale, U.S.-based assembly provider, will bring its operations, manufacturing, quality by design and supply chain expertise to InductEV allowing the latter to scale to meet customer demand.

Under the terms of this agreement, DMS will:

  • Manufacture InductEV’s hardware, including in-ground and under-vehicle inductive pads;
  • Manage InductEV’s supply chain and procurement;
  • Facilitate design for manufacturing and assembly;
  • Co-develop design optimizations to prepare for a 100-fold increase in production volume.

Among its product offerings, DMS currently handles manufacturing for the Ford EV F-150 Lightning. InductEV’s patented technology is currently being used in locations throughout North America and Europe, including in Washington State, Indianapolis, Martha’s Vineyard, and in Gothenburg, Sweden, Volvo’s hometown.

InductEV said its proprietary, on-route wireless charging solution shifts EV charging to daytime use of renewables. It said it reduces the need for large EV batteries and eliminates the need for recycling by extending battery life by a factor of four to eight times. Wireless charging also enables the broad deployment of autonomous vehicles, InductEV said.
