Lightning eMotors, a provider of zero-emission medium-duty commercial vehicles and electric vehicle (EV) technology for fleets, and HEVO, a provider of wireless EV charging technology are pleased to announce a program to demonstrate wireless charging of Lightning eMotors’ fleet vehicles.
After an initial integration phase, the two companies will test HEVO’s award-winning Rezonant E8
wireless charging technology on a ZEV3 platform at Lightning eMotors’ Loveland, CO headquarters. The demo vehicle will then be showcased to Lightning and HEVO fleet customers throughout North America.
The technology has a very limited weight penalty compared to other wireless charging solutions, thus retaining GVWR for additional passengers and cargo, and is compliant with UL and SAE safety, performance, and interoperability standards for wireless charging. The HEVO roadmap includes expanded energy delivery options of 11kW, 50kW, and 100–300kW to service fleets with a variety of dwell times and power needs.
