BMW has just invented a wireless charging with an optional hybrid. A wireless charging system developed by the brand i team uses an inductive charge in an electromagnetic field to charge a high-voltage vehicle battery without using a cable. The power supply is supplied by GroundPad, which can be placed where the vehicle owner uses it in a garage, driveway or car park. It is weatherproof and operates at all speeds and conditions. This technology is now available for orders from the next iPerformance model 530e and will be fully deployed in 2018 in the United States.
