WYTHEVILLE, VA – Evatran, the developer of the Plugless Power electric vehicle (EV) inductive recharging system, and Yazaki North America have signed a Joint Development Agreement to develop and market Plugless Power technology to automotive manufacturers as a factory or dealership option.
To charge with the Plugless Power system, the EV needs to be parked above the floor-mounted parking pad. The system uses induction technology to create wireless charge designed specifically for the high-power EV application. The system transfers up to 3.3KW of power at efficiencies above 90 percent, ensuring that vehicles recharge as quickly as with traditional plug-in methods.
