GM unveils its wireless battery management tech, will power next-gen EVs with Ultium batteries

GM is unveiling today its new wireless battery management technology that will power its third-generation electric vehicles equipped with Ultium batteries.

Earlier this year, GM unveiled its new electric strategy based on its new Ultium modular battery platform that will power a series of new electric cars starting with the Cadillac Lyric.

Now GM reveals more about its Ultium technology, as it claims to have the first “almost completely wireless battery management system”:

“General Motors will be the first automaker to use an almost completely wireless battery management system, or wBMS, for production electric vehicles. This wireless system, developed with Analog Devices, Inc., will be a primary driver of GM’s ability to ultimately power many different types of electric vehicles from a common set of battery components.”
