Evatran PLUGLESS Vehicle Adapter
Evatran Group announced a partnership with Mr. Electric Franchise Group, which will be responsible for installation of PLUGLESS wireless electric vehicle charging systems across the United States and Canada.
Both companies already have started training installers in key electric vehicle areas in the US and Canada, with additional geographies rolling out towards fall of 2014.
"The PLUGLESS L2 is the world's first wireless charging system designed specifically for electric vehicles. After two years of field trials with partners such as Google, Hertz, and Duke Energy, and receiving the industry's only safety certification from Electronic Testing Laboratories (ETL), the PLUGLESS System is now available to individual Nissan LEAF and Chevrolet Volt owners. The system charges as quickly as conventional corded systems and all vehicle features, such as charge-timers and phone applications, can be used seamlessly with the PLUGLESS system."
We are not sure if the Mr. Electric electricans will install just the charging spot or the vehicle adapters too. Nor do we know what this mean for the previous exclusive installation power partner Bosch Automotive Service Solutions, which is still is mentioned in FAQ?
Interesting is that this summer we should know at least one more model, for which Evatran developed PLUGLESS kit. Our bet is the Cadillac ELR, or maybe it will be Tesla Model S or BMW i3?
"Additional vehicles and model years will be announced this summer."
The current model of the PLUGLESS wireless charging system has power of 3.3 kW and more data can be found in this PDF.
Pricing starts at $2,470.
Rebecca Hough, Evatran CEO and Co-Founder stated:
"Our partnership with Mr. Electric ensures that PLUGLESS Systems will be installed in homes across the country with the highest regard to customer convenience and safety. We're thrilled with the positive feedback from our early PLUGLESS owners and look forward to installing additional systems with support from the Mr. Electric electrician network and our growing network of dealership partners."
Joel Worthington, president of Mr. Electric commente:
"The PLUGLESS system brings exciting new options to the consumer and opens new doors of opportunity in EV and green technology. We're very excited to join with Evatran to bring the next wave of cutting-edge technology to the marketplace."
