WiTricity is showcasing its wireless charging solution designed for electric golf cars and neighborhood electric vehicles (NEVs) at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The WiTricity Halo wireless EV charging system, comprising WiTricity's wireless charger, receiver, and cloud-connected software, has already been successfully implemented in numerous passenger vehicles worldwide. WiTricity had previously launched its FastTrack Integration Program for automotive OEMs, enabling initial vehicle integration in just three months. This program significantly enhances automakers' ability to test wireless charging on their existing and future EV platforms.

Using the same underlying wireless technology, WiTricity is set to unveil its wireless charging solution for golf cars, scheduled for commercial availability in the summer of 2024. The system includes the WiTricity Halo Receiver, which can be installed in the vehicle either at the factory or as a dealer-installed option, along with the WiTricity Halo Power Hub, which plugs into a standard household outlet. Key launch partners will be announced at CES.

Alex Gruzen, CEO of WiTricity, stated, “Consumers have been unequivocal in their desire for wireless charging for EVs of all sizes,” said Alex Gruzen, CEO of WiTricity. “It’s exciting to showcase the broad range of wireless charging solutions enabled by WiTricity, from new electric vehicles to the rapidly growing market of golf cars on both residential streets and courses. We’re providing people with the freedom to simply park and charge.”

Golf cars are increasingly becoming the preferred mode of transportation in many communities across the US, whether for a round of golf or errands within the community, thanks to their convenience and environmentally friendly nature. Now, golf car owners and operators can enjoy the convenience of wireless charging, which offers efficiency and speed comparable to plug-in charging without the hassles associated with physical plugging.

In addition to this development, WiTricity will also showcase the future availability of wireless charging for an upcoming vehicle from a South Korean automaker. This vehicle will be showcased alongside WiTricity's upgraded Ford Mach-E, equipped with WiTricity's magnetic resonance technology, making hassle-free charging possible by simply parking over the WiTricity Halo Charger.

“Global demand for wireless charging for EVs continues to grow,” said Gruzen. “We are thrilled to have the opportunity to work with new OEMs and help to provide wireless charging for more drivers worldwide.”
