Bosch, Evatran Offer Discounts To Early Adopters Of Wireless Chargers

Bosch and Evatran are offering discounts to early adopters of their PLUGLESS™ wireless electric vehicle charging system. The first 250 customers can purchase the Chevy Volt system for $1,998, and the Nissan Leaf system for $2,098.

This wireless charging system is compatible with all Chevy Volt models, and the 2010–2012 Nissan Leaf models. Early this year, support for other models is likely to be released.

According to a news release on PR Newswire: This product line is to enable customers to avoid the “repetitive process” of plugging electric vehicles in and out. This is not really an issue — just takes seconds. However, these chargers are very convenient. An idea is to install them in the parking spaces at office buildings so that employees can drive home with a full charge every day, and without having countless cords scattered on the pavement. These could also be set up at car rental facilities so that electric rental cars can recharge automatically as soon as they are returned.

“Since the beginning of our Company, we have focused on bringing this convenient charging technology to individual EV drivers,” said Rebecca Hough, Evatran CEO and Co-Founder. “After years of trials with commercial and municipal partners including Google, Duke Energy, the City of Raleigh, and Hertz, we’re excited to announce that the time has come. To celebrate our first shipments, we will be offering a 30% discount off the price of our PLUGLESS system to our initial 250 customers. This is an important day for the future of electric vehicles and we’re proud to invite our first 250 customers to join us in making history.”

This system comes with an adapter for the specific vehicle it is meant to charge, and a charging station to be installed in the vehicle’s parking area. The first 250 units will be delivered from February through May 2014.
