Wireless electric car chargers

Trials of induction pads to take place across London

Owners of electric vehicles will be able to charge their cars wirelessly by the spring, we can exclusively reveal.

Trials of cutting-edge induction pads will take place on residential streets, car parks and taxi ranks across Greater London, the Midlands and Scotland.

The pads, which are sunk into the ground, pump out an alternating electromagnetic field which can be converted into electricity when a vehicle is parked on top.

The technology removes the need for unsightly charging points and cumbersome cables running down the street.

Many existing electric vehicles can be retro-fitted with the technology to enable them to use the wireless chargers, while many models coming out in the coming months will already have the capability built in.

Inventors at British firm Connected Kerb said the wireless induction kit puts Britain at the forefront of electric vehicle charging.

Induction charging pads work like the wifi charging pads for smartphones – charging up the unit without plugging in.

Chris Pateman-Jones of Connected Kerb reportedly stated

“It seems unlikely that we will still plug in EVs in the next five to 10 years … indeed the new VW range coming to market next year is induction charging enabled. We see immediate use cases for induction charging in taxi ranks and for disabled people, who presently struggle with the trailing cables involved in charging an EV.”
