WiTricity powers first wirelessly charged electric pickup truck

WiTricity, a global leader in wireless EV charging, announced that KG Mobility’s all-new, all-electric Torres EVX Pickup will offer WiTricity-enabled wireless charging.

“We are proud that WiTricity’s technology has been selected by KG Mobility,” said Alex Gruzen, CEO of WiTricity. “KG Mobility customers will soon discover that they will enjoy safe, reliable charging as soon as they park their car.”

Instead of hassling with a plug to charge their battery, owners who equip their Torres EVX Pickup with WiTricity’s magnetic resonance technology will charge their vehicle by simply parking over a charging pad, which draws power from a 240-volt household circuit. WiTricity’s magnetic resonance technology allows for wireless charging at the same speed and efficiency as a Level 2 plug-in charger.

This option will be available beginning with the 2025 model year Torres EVX Pickup. A Torres EVX SUV outfitted with a receiver based on WiTricity’s technology was displayed at WiTricity’s booth at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
