BMW Moves Forward with Inductive Charging Stations
With its lineup of all-electric and hybrid models continuing to grow, BMW has been studying new technology to create a faster, more convenient way to charge its vehicles. Inductive charging seems to be the answer for the automaker, as well as the next step for energy supply. This cable-free charging station offers more convenience, as owners simply have to park their cars over the platform. Daimler and the BMW Group have recently signed an agreement to jointly develop and implement the inductive charging technology. The system consists of two components, a secondary coil in the vehicle floor and a base plate with the primary coil underneath the vehicle. This would most commonly be placed on the garage floor.
