Kia Soul gets it’s Mojo
Kia America and Mojo Mobility have announced a partnership project to roll out and test wireless charging. For more than 12 years Mojo Mobility has been pioneering the technology for OEMs to provide wireless charging solutions across a broad range of products. Named “Near Field Power”, Mojo’s technology allows position-free charging which means a driver doesn’t need to position their vehicle exactly to allow a charge to happen.
The partnership with Kia will see several Soul EVs being tested in real world scenarios over a period of time to asses and craft the technology. As wireless charging technology becomes faster, more efficient and cost effective, many car manufacturers are investing and testing the tech. Wireless tech combined with autonomous vehicle tech would mean that the vehicle could drive itself and then take itself off for a charge.
