Bosch will produce the first wireless electric vehicle charging system, the technology supplier announced this week.

The Plugless L2 System resembles a small launch pad in the middle of the floor (see a photo here). Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf owners — the system isn’t compatible with other EV models — would simply drive over the parking pad to start charging their cars. The system includes the parking pad, a vehicle adapter to be installed in the car’s undercarriage and a wall-mounted control panel to help in alignment and other standard charging-station functions.
