2014 will be the year that EVs go wireless. Evatran will begin deliveries of its PLUGLESS wireless charging system in February. In partnership with Bosch, which provides installation services, the company has announced special promotional pricing to the first 250 customers – $1,998 for the Volt-compatible system and $2,098 for the LEAF-compatible system, which represents a 30% discount off the system’s standard MSRP.
The PLUGLESS system is currently compatible with all Chevrolet Volt model years and 2010-2012 Nissan LEAF model years. Additional vehicles and model years will be announced in early 2014. PLUGLESS charges the Volt and LEAF as quickly as conventional corded systems and works with all vehicle features, such as charge timers and phone applications.
“Since the beginning of our Company, we have focused on bringing this convenient charging technology to individual EV drivers,” said Rebecca Hough, Evatran CEO and Co-Founder. “After years of trials with commercial and municipal partners including Google, Duke Energy, the City of Raleigh, and Hertz, we’re excited to announce that the time has come. To celebrate our first shipments, we will be offering a 30% discount off the price of our PLUGLESS system to our initial 250 customers. This is an important day for the future of electric vehicles and we’re proud to invite our first 250 customers to join us in making history.”
The PLUGLESS system includes a vehicle adapter, specific to each EV model, and a charging station that is installed in the user’s garage or dedicated parking space.
