Is induction charging the future for EV’s?

Here’s some interesting news…

Induction charging seems to be the future of electric vehicle charging.

If you’re not sure, it means you’ll be able to charge an electric vehicle without the use of a cable.

Think about wireless smart phone charging and you’ll understand what we mean, although we’re talking on a much bigger scale.

Not sure if this will be the answer for terraced properties, it depends how close you’ll need to be for charging to happen, but wireless charging is on its way and will certainly make our lives easier.

Take the new 2024 Audi A9 e-Tron, as well as having driverless car technology and a load of other futuristic gadgets, it charges its battery by aligning with a nearby charging point without the use of a cable and covers up to 500 miles on a single charge.

We’ve no doubt the likes of BMW, Tesla, Porsche, Mercedes, Hyundai, Kia, and the other car manufacturers will be investing in induction charging technology too.

We’ve even been speaking to some of the leading charge point manufacturers, gaining confirmation from SYNC EV that they’ve got induction charging on their list of future upgrades.

Although the technology is still years away, SYNC EV will implement it once its available at an affordable price point.

…be interesting to see if Wallbox, Podpoint, EO, Rolec & Andersen are looking at it too?
