More than that, this could potentially recharge any vehicle regardless of manufacturer, according to a press release. "The system design works across all plug-in electric vehicle platforms and can be deployed as a 'floor pad' in a consumer's garage," the statement says. Specifically, Toyota and Delphi (a major GM supplier) are already onboard with licensing agreements.
