General Motors Partnership with Powermat in High Gear

Drivers of the 2016 Chevy Malibu and Impala models will feel added power and control (over their busy lives) with the ability to wirelessly charge their mobile phones on the move. The recent announcement by General Motors extends a partnership that first got rolling when the Powermat platform was introduced in the 2015 Cadillac CTS Sedan and 2015 Cadillac Escalade.

Whether in a Starbucks, an educational institution or on the road, Powermat is committed to delivering wireless power technology to the places people need it most. And, as more smartphones become PMA-embedded, it won’t be long before consumers no longer need phone charging covers to charge up while driving.

If you drive a new GM vehicle, please take a look at this list of compatible wireless charging covers for your specific device for your specific device. And if you’re having any difficulty powering up your phone, here’s where you can find information on using your vehicle's wireless device charging station.

By giving drivers the ability to charge their phones on the open road, GM is empowering people to stay productive and connected, with the added side effect of keeping roads safer. Now with a place to lay their phones to power up, drivers should text less behind the wheel, then arrive at their destination with a device that is charged up and ready to go.

In addition, the wireless charging solution in General Motors new models, including the 2016 Malibu and Impala, will now double as an air conditioning system for smartphones, which will be especially valuable over the summer months. Becoming the first carmaker to offer Active Phone Cooling, this smart, elegant solution connects the vehicle's air conditioning and ventilation system to the wireless charging station through a vent.

It's a great innovation from a carmaker that's always thinking of consumers. By continuing its partnership with Powermat, General Motors knows it's teaming with a company that knows what people need, and what drives them.
