We first heard about Plugless Power's plan to provide aftermarket wireless charging units for the Tesla Model S awhile back, and the company released a teaser video during development of the EVSE this past Spring.
Want to charge your Model S wireless? Here is your chance
Now, the company has sent us a video of the complete system in action.
The system is rated at 7.2 kW, which means it will replenish about 20-25 miles of range per hour.
If interested, the system currently retails as an "early bird special" for $2,440 (US) dollars, and can be reserved now with a refundable $244 deposit today. The regular MSRP will be $3,290.
We asked Steve from Plugless about the expected delivery timelines:
"The first deliveries will be for Model S owners with RWD who have already reserved Plugless, we’ll begin shipping Plugless units for Tesla Model S AWD later this year as we ramp up deliveries."
As for the next obvious question, we asked Steve about future plans for the Model X.
"Tesla Model X will be a focus soon after that (delivery of the AWD units)", but the company had no specific timing available yet.
