Wireless Charging for Used Cars is Coming Soon to San Diego

February 24th, 2017 by


For some, having to plug in an electric vehicle to recharge is a deterrent from investing in one of the most eco-friendly technologies available in the auto industry. But that could all change with the arrival of wireless charging for used cars in San Diego.

What is Wireless Charging for Cars?

Normally, electric car owners refuel their vehicles with at-home charging systems or at public charging stations. With wireless charging, you can simply park on top of a wireless charging pad that will boost your battery back to a full charge.

Not only will wireless charging vehicles become more widely available in the next few years, but they will return on the market to used car dealers like Rock Auto Group  — meaning that you could get one for a rock bottom price!

Who’s Leading the Charge on These Innovations in EV Technology?

San Diego-based company Qualcomm is among the frontrunners in tech which has agreed to use Halo technology to provide wireless charging for the first ever EV vehicle that will hit the market with this new technology, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz S550e.

Other tech companies are in the loop, too, with charging pads that can regenerate the Nissan Leaf to an 80 percent charge in 30 minutes. California hopes to provide at least 500 of these in public spaces to encourage the use of EV vehicles in the state’s efforts to make zero emissions vehicles more appealing.

Other developments are being made to wireless charging for electric vehicles with long-term hopes of having coils in road systems that charge vehicles as you drive. This would eventually erase the need for gasoline and eliminate the minor inconveniences of owning an electric vehicle.
