Tesla wireless charging devices developed by Evatran

Evatran is the company behind Plugless Power wireless charging solutions, and is now taking pre-orders for a charging pad that will work with Tesla cars. The inductive charging pad will charge rear-wheel drive cars when it ships this April.

Wireless charging systems for all wheel-drive Tesla vehicles “will begin deliveries later in the year, but we do not have a specific date,” Evatran says.

So far there has been no announcement on how much the wireless charging pad will cost, but interested parties can leave a refundable deposit of $244 with the company. Evatran has already developed wireless charging systems for other electric vehicles such as the Chevy Volt (which costs $1,260), Nissan Leaf ($1,540), and Cadillac ELR ($1,940).

Range of wireless charging pads set to grow

“Plugless is not yet available for Tesla Roadster, Model X or Model 3. Our engineers are hard at work to bring Plugless to all Tesla models,” say the company.

The system can be installed either in a garage or outdoors. It’s a 7.2-kW system which requires a 50-amp circuit, and should give your Model S 20miles of range for every hour of charge.Evatran says that there is no need to make any changes to your Tesla software or systems. The 35-pound wireless adapter that needs to be fixed to your car will be installed by a certified technician, and the cost of installation is included in the package.Keep your eyes out for more details on pricing, but be prepared to pay between $1,000-2,000 for the pleasure of charging your Tesla through a wireless charging pad. While the Evatran system won’t add any great functionality, it does afford more convenience. Instead of having to plug in your car, simply park it in the appropriate spot to have it recharge.
