MAHLE licenses wireless EV charging technology from WiTricity

Automotive supplier MAHLE announced that it has licensed magnetic resonance wireless charging technology from WiTricity.

“With the acquisition of licenses for WiTricity’s magnetic resonance technology, we’re now progressing to the concrete development stage,” said MAHLE’s Otmar Scharrer. “This will involve our expertise in control electronics, software, and thermal management. In the development of our solution, we’re placing particular emphasis on a modular, compact system that can be upgraded by the customer.”

MAHLE’s system will be bidirectional, allowing EVs to both charge and give energy back to the network. The heat generated during the charging process could be used to preheat the passenger cabin, according to MAHLE.

“This addition to the MAHLE portfolio provides us with a crucial element for the long-term acceptance and expansion of e-mobility,” said MAHLE CEO Jörg Stratmann. “We believe this technology offers strong market potential. Our solution will enable fast, reliable, and highly efficient charging.”
