Cadillac ELR gets wireless charging capability
The group launched charging packages for available for the Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt at the start of the year.
These comprise a pad in the ground to transmit energy to a fixed receiver on the car, which in turn supplies the battery, similar to charging stands for electric toothbrushes.
From the 1st of September, the Chevrolet Volt-based ELR coupe will be able to take advantage of the PLUGLESS L2 charger, capable of filling the battery to capacity in four hours.
Rebecca Hough, Evatran CEO and co-founder, said: ‘The launch of the Cadillac ELR system is an important milestone for us. Our intention has always been to make convenient wireless charging available to all electric vehicle drivers.
‘Until now, we’ve focused on perfecting the system for LEAF and Volt drivers. It’s now time to shift our focus to expansion to more EV owners across the country and across the world.’
