Evatran and Bosch offer Promotional Pricing as low as $1,998 to first 250 PLUGLESS™ Wireless EV Charging Customers

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Evatran Group, Inc. ("Evatran"), in partnership with Bosch Automotive Service Solutions, announced today at the 2014 Consumer Electronics Show that it is offering reduced promotional pricing to the first 250 customers who opt to Go PLUGLESS with their electric vehicle ("EV") experience.  The PLUGLESS system offers a convenient, wireless charging alternative to the repetitive process of unplugging and plugging-in electric vehicles. The reduced pricing includes all charging hardware and is as much as a 30% discount off the system's standard MSRP. The discount is available only to the first 250 customers.

Initial shipments of the PLUGLESS system, the first wireless EV charging product in the world available to individual EV drivers, will begin in February 2014. The PLUGLESS system is currently compatible with all Chevrolet Volt model years and 2010 – 2012 Nissan LEAF model years. The Volt system will be offered at $1,998.00, and the LEAF system will be offered at $2,098.00 for the first 250 units. The system charges the Volt and LEAF as quickly as conventional corded systems and all vehicle features, such as charge-timers and phone applications, can be used seamlessly with the PLUGLESS system. Additional vehicles and model years will be announced in early 2014.

"Since the beginning of our Company, we have focused on bringing this convenient charging technology to individual EV drivers," said Rebecca Hough, Evatran CEO and Co-Founder. "After years of trials with commercial and municipal partners including Google, Duke Energy, the City of Raleigh, and Hertz, we're excited to announce that the time has come. To celebrate our first shipments, we will be offering a 30% discount off the price of our PLUGLESS system to our initial 250 customers. This is an important day for the future of electric vehicles and we're proud to invite our first 250 customers to join us in making history."

The first 250 units, dedicated to this promotional program, will be delivered from February through May 2014, based on the customer's order processing date. Delivery quantities will be limited to this Program for the first five months of production and additional orders will be placed on a waiting list for delivery beginning in June 2014.

The PLUGLESS system includes a vehicle adapter, specific to each EV model, and a charging station that is installed in the user's garage or dedicated parking space. Bosch will provide comprehensive installation services. 

In order to take advantage of this offer, interested customers can call Evatran at 877-805-3873 or visit www.pluglesspower.com to place an order.

Fundamentally, SDN is still mostly about network plumbing. While plumbing may be useful to tinker with, what you can do with your plumbing is far more intriguing. A rigid interpretation of SDN confines it to Layers 2 and 3, and that's reasonable. But SDN opens opportunities for novel constructions in Layers 4 to 7 that solve real operational problems in data centers. "Data center," in fact, might become anachronistic - data is everywhere, constantly on the move, seemingly always overflowing. Net...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
