Similar to Elonroad, ElectReon develops wireless on-the-go car charging solutions. Well-described as a “shared energy platform,” ElectReon’s solution involves the conversion of asphalt roads to always-active electric vehicle (EV) wireless chargers.
This charging solution is especially unique by its installation time. As the only necessary procedures are to install a narrow copper coil and connect it to the electric grid, ElectReon is able to install a mile’s length of its charging system in just a matter of days. With much interest, the ElectReon solution is already working in several locations including Tel Aviv, Gotland, Germany, and road A35 in Italy.
Auto Trendy’s take:
This is quite an amazing solution. The quick installation time along with the functionality definitely makes the wireless charging solution of ElectReon a great one. In fact, a solution like this is perfect for commercial vehicles. Rather than driving around with a heavy battery that is meant for long distances, the electric commercial vehicles can now allow for additional order weight, and must no longer suffer from downtime caused by charging. It will be exciting to see where ElectReon’s next project will be and how quickly it will take to set up.
