Evatran Brings Wireless Charging To Cars

Until another alternative energy form come around, electric cars are the wave of the future. To make them easy to charge, Evatran has developed a wireless charging system.

The base stations are made of a charging disc that sits on the floor of your garage or driveway. You then drive your car over the disc and it wirelessly charges the car’s electric battery. You need a special adaptor inside the engine to do the charging, but that’s about it.

Evatran is testing the system with a handful of fleet Chevy Volts and is hoping to mass produce the units late in 2012. Convenience comes with a price tag as the units now are priced at $US2000 for an indoor unit and $US3000 for an outdoor unit. These prices are expected to drop as the technology develops.
