WiTricity announced that its technology is seeing its first availability as factory-installed equipment in a fully electric vehicle (BEV) GV60. Hyundai unveiled the Genesis GV60 in a series of videos and announcements featuring wireless charging. The Hyundai Motor Group previously demonstrated wireless charging technology at the 2018 Geneva Motor Show. The Genesis GV60 is the brand’s third SUV and first BEV. It will initially be available in South Korea.

In the future, in addition to simplicity and reliability, wireless charging also has the potential to provide Vehicle-to-Grid (V2G) power and dynamic charging to power vehicles in motion. And it will be helpful for autonomous vehicles, providing the ability to refuel without human intervention.
