Electreon to Unveil Groundbreaking Wireless Electric Road Technology in Public Demonstration

What’s Happening

Electreon revealed plans to host a public demonstration of its pioneering wireless Electric Road technology, known as Dynamic Wireless EV Charging, within a week’s time. Commencing on May 21st, 2023, the company’s innovative tech will be placed center-stage, charging a TOYOTA RAV4-PHEV as it navigates Electreon’s specially designed wireless Electric Road.

Why It Matters

This demonstration is set to challenge the current limits of electric vehicle (EV) technology. Over a span of five days (21st-25th of May, 2023), the TOYOTA RAV4-PHEV, equipped with a compact 18 kWh battery, will travel between 1,000 – 1,500 km without the battery fully depleting. This marks a significant stride in EV technology, showcasing a potential for limitless range, a feature particularly beneficial for vehicles with smaller battery sizes.

Key Points

Electreon’s demonstration track stretches just over 200 meters, with roughly a quarter of the track electrified. By covering a distance of 1,000 km, the wireless EV charging technology could extend the vehicle’s range by 13 times beyond current hybrid capabilities. If the vehicle were to cover 1,500 km, this would equate to a twentyfold increase in range.

The demonstration will continue uninterrupted for five days, with drivers rotating but the vehicle never halting for dedicated charging. On May 24th, a select group of clients, partners, suppliers, investors, academics, and political leaders will be invited to witness this historic event. Additionally, the event will be live-streamed, allowing interested parties to tune in at any moment.

Bottom Line

Oren Ezer, CEO and Co-founder of Electreon, stated that support for wireless EV charging technologies is at an all-time high since the company’s inception in 2013. He believes that the company is at a crucial tipping point, with ongoing projects in five countries and partnerships with over 60 global entities, including leading automotive companies.

Ezer recently shared news of the launch of the first public shuttle that charges as it drives in Germany. This, coupled with Electreon’s significant media attention, including a feature in Bloomberg’s documentary, “How Electric Roads Could Power the Future,” and recognition by TIME Magazine as one of its Inventions of the Year in 2021, indicates a surge of interest in this breakthrough technology.
