No Strings: 2018 Mercedes-Benz S550e Plug-In Hybrid to Add Wireless Charging

A plug-in hybrids’ clean, nearly silent rechargeable electric power can be a perk worth some extra cost to those who want to be seen as conscientious consumers, and drawing power from the grid is becoming easier to do as infrastructure expands. But the actual plugging-in business, the hands-on tangle of charging?especially at home, where every morning and evening involve fussing with a charging cable?doesn?t exactly speak the language of luxury. That?s likely one reason Mercedes-Benz will offer wireless charging on the S550e plug-in hybrid, beginning with the facelifted version that Mercedes-Benz will sell in the U.S. as a 2018 model.
Mercedes-Benz revealed the system in June, and supplier Qualcomm now confirms that it is fully vetted for U.S. sale and Mercedes-Benz USA says it will be available here, although it can?t comment yet about details such as home installation?or even whether the technology will be standard or optional. The company will say that the single-phase charger will work at just 3.6 kW, sufficient to charge the 2018 S550e?s larger 13.5-kWh battery pack overnight. The charger can operate at an impressive 90 percent efficiency, measured from power supply to on-board charger, requiring no charging-door release, and no fussing with ports or cables. Some professional garage installation and a 240-volt circuit probably will be required, after which the owner can just park the car in the right place (systems in the car will aid in that process) and find it ready-to-go in the morning.
Wireless (inductive) charging is a lot more elegant, and the fundamental technology has been around for a long time?GM was touting its potential for its EV1 nearly 20 years ago. Yet hurdles like charging speed, cost, and safety concerns have kept it from becoming widely adopted by automakers as a factory-original technology.
Adding a Hands-Free Halo
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz S550e will offer a version of Qualcomm Halo Wireless Electric Vehicle Charging (WEVC) technology. The tech is already proven, although it?s the first such application for a vehicle in a factory-original application. Qualcomm bought Halo, then a UK-based company, in 2011, and the Halo technology benefits from more than 25 years of development that started with research at the University of Auckland, Australia.
The factory installation follows a 2015 announcement of a multifaceted collaboration between Qualcomm and Mercedes-Benz parent company Daimler AG, involving high-speed data connectivity and wireless charging technology. The new system is expected to be fully compliant with SAE J2954, the industry-wide standard that?s due in its final form later this year and expected to cover interoperability, compatibility, safety, and performance standards for vehicle wireless charging.
Parking Guidance: No More Threading the Needle
In the past, using inductive charging that was installed on a parking pad meant minutes of fussing to line up to rather small pads, but this system will be a l...
