GCC: Meet gulplug’s P-Plate – A Self Plug-In Charging Station (w/video)

Wed Jun 13, 2018 5:08 pm

A drive-over alternative to inductive charging. There's a video. https://insideevs.com/gulplugs-p-plate-a-self-plug-in-charging-station-w-video/

. . . There are no efficiency losses, as in the case of wireless charging, but convenience should be similar. Also, the price of the P-Plate should be no higher than a conventional home charging station, according to the company. Though no official pricing has been announced.

Charging power of up to 7 kW (22 kW while 3-phase) is expected to be possible.

Gulplug is trying to introduce the P-Plate on the market and has already entered into a cooperation with Volvo.

That is so lame....

Like we need to have our machines self-mate like on Avatar....

I could see a lot of areas for problems... like retracting motor problems, how does is know how much to release, and the best... fools who cannot park to save their lives...
