Qualcomm Signs More Participants for UK Wireless Charging Trials
Qualcomm has signed deals with both Renault and Delta Motorsport concerning the trials of its wireless power charging service in London. In November 2011, Qualcomm announced a WEVC trial in London to commence in 2012. The objectives of the trial are to evaluate the commercial viability of wireless EV charging and gain user feedback on the use of WEVC-enabled vehicles.
“We are very excited about the prospects of working with Renault, a global leader in electric vehicles and an innovator in the growing low carbon vehicle market,” said Anthony Thomson, vice president of business development and marketing at Qualcomm. “Renault’s participation in the WEVC London trial aligns with Qualcomm’s drive to make charging of electric vehicles simple and effortless.”
Delta Motorsport also plans to participate with Qualcomm Europe Inc. on a steering committee for the London trial and to provide support for the London Trial.
