WiTricity showcases wireless charging options at CES

The WiTricity Halo wireless EV charging system includes the company's wireless charger, receiver and cloud-connected software.

WiTricity showcased its solution for wireless charging on electric golf cars and neighborhood electric vehicles (NEVs) at the Consumer Electronics (CES) Show in Las Vegas, Nevada. WiTricity also displayed a new vehicle from a South Korea-based OEM outfitted with a receiver based on WiTricity technology alongside a Ford Mach-E that has been upgraded with the WiTricity Halo Wireless Receiver in its booth, the company said.

The WiTricity Halo wireless EV charging system, which includes WiTricity’s wireless charger, receiver and cloud-connected software, has been implemented on numerous passenger vehicles around the world, according to WiTricity. WiTricity previously launched its FastTrack Integration Program for automotive OEMs which allows for an initial vehicle integration in just three months.

Utilizing the same underlying wireless technology, WiTricity unveiled its wireless charging solution for golf cars which will be commercially available starting in the summer. The system includes the WiTricity Halo Receiver, which will be mounted in the vehicle either at the factory or as a dealer-installed option, and the WiTricity Halo Power Hub, which plugs into an ordinary household outlet. Key launch partners also will be announced at CES, the company said.

WiTricity also demonstrated the future availability of wireless charging on an upcoming new vehicle from a South Korean automaker. This vehicle sat alongside WiTricity’s Ford Mach-E, equipped with WiTricity’s magnetic resonance technology and capable of charging by parking over the WiTricity Halo Charger.
