EV wireless charging on the horizon

Wireless charging mats for electric vehicles are being developed to eliminate cords and reduce EV-buyer anxiety.

Automotive News reports the charging mats are designed to sit on the floor and be plugged into a power source while coils located on the underside of the car allow wireless engagement of the charger to charge the battery while the vehicle is parked.

This means that while the mats are plugged in the car is free of any leads. IHS Automotive powertrain research analyst Phil Gott told Automotive News, “The feedback we see from initial Volt and Leaf buyers is that, ‘Gee, these cords get really dirty; gee, these cords get all tangled; what a pain in the neck.’ A wireless charger truly gives you total freedom.”
