Ponder this, non-EV owners: Would you accept an EV as your next vehicle if, no matter your budget, you knew you’d always have the range you needed without ever having to plug in to charge up?
If you ask Jeremy McCool, founder and CEO of HEVO, this promise will be the catalyst that will convert the masses to EV owners.
“The one thing that wireless does better than anything else in terms of accelerating EV adoption is that it can provide the ability for drivers to drive and charge at the same time. And, this year… we will be demonstrating in the Detroit area highway speed tests with 200-kilowatt wireless dynamic charging. So, an [electric] vehicle will be driving at highway speeds, collecting charge as it goes,” McCool says.
In this episode of The Amped EV Podcast, McCool talks us through reasons why fleets are switching to wireless EV charging, how wireless charging works and why tollways that charge your car while you’re driving might be the next evolution of U.S. driveable infrastructure.
