Wireless charging for Infiniti's Leaf?
Slated for release next year, the production version of Nissan’s LE concept will be based on the Nissan LEAF. But in addition to its vastly different sheet metal and upscale appointments, Infiniti is counting on another trait to distinguish it further from the LEAF: Wireless charging, says Autocar UK.
As with the current crop of EVs, the biggest roadblock to this will be infrastructure. It’s difficult to perfect conventional charging stations currently, let alone wireless ones. The success of this is dependent on which markets implement it first. In addition, Infiniti hopes to encourage automakers to develop the technology, also known as induction charging, on an open-source basis, rather than individually.
