Wireless tech: The future of EVs

Although most wireless electric vehicle (EV) charging systems are currently in the pilot phase (and could stay there for up to three years), many believe that wireless technology represents the future of plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) charging.

By 2015-2016, EV models with built-in wireless charging capability will be available from several major automakers, according to Navigant Research, and, within a decade, wireless charging could be the leading method of charging EVs. In fact, worldwide sales of wireless EV charging systems will grow from a few hundred in 2014 to nearly 302,000 by 2022, Navigant predicts.
