Bosch Automotive Service Solutions  and the Evatran Group  are developing a wireless electric vehicle  charging system that could become the first commercially available system of its kind in the US. Unlike other EV charging systems , the Plugless Level 2 Electric Vehicle Charging System  offers hands-free, automatic EV charging. All EV drivers have to do is park their vehicles on the system’s floor-mounted Parking Pad and their vehicle begins charging.
According to Bosch, it is all part of the company’s continuing drive to “bring affordable charging options to a growing EV market.” “Bosch offers an affordable 240V charging solution for every EV driver,” said Tanvir Arfi, president of Bosch Automotive Service Solutions and EDTA conference speaker. “The addition of the Plugless L2 System to our portfolio helps us provide our customers the most dynamic and innovative range of charging solutions available.”
Bosch will be providing the installation solution for the Plugless L2 System, and they will also be in charge of the home infrastructure portion of the system. Meanwhile, Bosch Car Service centers will install the on-vehicle components needed to make the entire system work.
“We are thrilled to launch the first wireless charging system ,” said Rebecca Hough, CEO and co-founder of Evatran, “Plugless L2 gives EV drivers a more convenient, reliable charging option. Working with Bosch’s existing network of certified electricians and 1,300+ Bosch Car Service centers across the U.S., combined with their industry-leading financing options, we’re bringing a game-changing charging solution to the EV market.”
