Global automaker and mobility provider Stellantis and HEVO Inc., a provider of wireless electric vehicle charging technology are partnering to integrate wireless charging into Stellantis EVs, which will enable a superior charging experience without sacrificing safety, efficiency, or durability.
Wireless EV charging is designed to increase simplicity and safety, while removing operational friction associated with cord management.
HEVO’s award-winning technology is up to 95% efficient (grid-to-battery) and is compliant with SAE and UL wireless charging standards. Prior to mass adoption, early applications of this technology include logistics and transit fleets, as well as disabled drivers who benefit from accessible and ADA-compliant charging.
HEVO and Stellantis are initially demonstrating Level 2 wireless charging on a Chrysler Pacifica PHEV at the company’s office complex in Auburn Hills, Michigan. Successful completion of this demonstration in 2023 and a subsequent 50kW fast wireless charging project will lead to opportunities for HEVO to provide wireless charging to Stellantis customers targeting cost competitiveness with plug-in charging as production volumes scale.
HEVO’s Chief Commercial Officer, Vic Peltola, commented: “HEVO is energized by Stellantis’s commitment to innovation and improving the end-to-end experience for EV drivers. With their diverse product lineup and brands such as Jeep, Ram, Dodge, Chrysler, Fiat, Maserati and Peugeot, our collaboration will accelerate decarbonization by enabling significant benefits for fleet and passenger customers seeking a more convenient and seamless charging experience.”
