How Wireless Charging Frees EV Fleets from Downtime

Last-mile electric vehicle (EV) fleets using wireless charging technology, saved up to 50% in total cost of ownership (TCO), a new report from WiTricity suggests.

In a standard plug-in model, EVs are essentially taken out of service to charge: a driver moves the EV to the charger, plugs in, and there the EV remains until sufficiently charged, it says.

In contrast, wireless charging lets fleets adapt their charging model to existing business workflows by bringing the charge to the EVs where they are: at the dock being loaded, at the depot being cleaned or prepped, or while parked.
