ELIX Wireless, a developer of low-EMI, safe wireless charging technology for eMobility, announced the grand opening of its China engineering centre located in Zongshen Power’s state-of-the-art campus in Chongqing. This engineering centre will advance the development and manufacturing of its wireless charging systems and allow ELIX to avail itself of synergies with one of China’s leading automotive manufacturers, Zongshen Power.
The CIO of Zongshen Group, Mr. Li Yao, said: “We are pleased to expand our relationship with ELIX. Following our recent financial investment, we are now excited to offer manufacturing resources that will give ELIX a unique advantage in quickly bringing its wireless charging technology to mass production.”
ELIX has developed a wireless charging technology that can transfer high power to an electric vehicle using low frequency, high-efficiency Magneto Dynamic Coupling (MDC). The core intellectual property was developed at the University of British Columbia and is protected by issued patents in the US, China, Japan and Canada through 2030. The company’s low-frequency wireless charging technology is safer than traditional wireless inductive charging solutions, avoids EMI issues and scales more easily.
“We couldn’t have asked for a better partner than Zongshen as we scale up our product,” said Christian Zapf, CEO of ELIX Wireless. “Their cash and manufacturing investments in ELIX enable us to get to market faster and address opportunities globally for our world-class wireless charging systems.”
ELIX Wireless charging solutions are currently being field-tested by some of the leading automakers and autonomous mobility companies in China, US and Europe.
