“We’re thrilled to see our technology in a new luxury EV like the GV60,” said WiTricity CEO Alex Gruzen. “This is truly a watershed moment with Hyundai at the forefront of technology solutions that enable a better driving experience. We expect it won’t be long until all car manufacturers include wireless charging for their customers.”

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 indispensable for autonomous vehicles, providing the ability to refuel without human intervention.
