Electreon has announced it is ready to publicly demonstrate what, Oren Ezer, CEO and Co-founder of Electreon, describes as “The unlimited potential of wireless Electric Road technology (Dynamic Wireless EV Charging).”
In less than one week (starting on May 21st, 2023), the Electreon team will showcase its industry-changing wireless Electric Road technology charging a TOYOTA RAV4-PHEV as it drives on the company’s demonstration wireless Electric Road for up to 100 hours. In a world first, over a five-day period (21st-25th of May, 2023), the hybrid EV’s compact and lightweight 18 kWh battery will never be depleted (fully discharged) and will drive between 1,000 – 1,500 km over the five-day period. Electreon selected this hybrid vehicle to demonstrate how any EV, even one with a minimal vehicle battery size can benefit from extended, even unlimited range, with wireless EV charging. The company’s demonstration track is just over 200 meters in length and approximately 25% of the track is electrified. By driving 1,000 km, the wireless EV charging technology will increase the range 13 times more than the current hybrid vehicle real-world limits; and driving 1,500 km without will extend the vehicle’s range 20-fold.
While drivers will change throughout the week, the vehicle will not need to stop for dedicated charging time throughout the five-day period. On Wednesday, 24th of May, the Electreon team will welcome select clients, partners, suppliers, investors, industry, academics, investors and political leaders to its headquarters to witness ‘history in the driving’. The driving rally will be live-streamed for anyone to tune into at any point.
“Industry, political and public support for wireless EV charging technologies is greater now than at any other time since Electreon’s doors opened in 2013. We witnessed industry enthusiasm for our wireless EV technology grow into unwavering support. Now we see it bloom into declarations of commitment to advance wireless charging in commercial projects in public roads across the globe. Today we are involved in a dozen projects across five countries together with more than 60 global partners, including leading automotive partners. This is the tipping point.” said Oren Ezer. “Just this month we launched the first public shuttle that charges as it drives in Germany (dynamically). Here we are also demonstrating the true potential of the wireless EV charging road.”
