Volvo Tests Wireless Charging Using its XC40 Recharge

For now, electric vehicles need to be plugged in to be charged. But as we’ve seen with newer cellular devices, it's not far-fetched to think that inductive energy recovery (or charging) will one day be a reality.

In fact, such systems already exist, but up to now they’ve all been limited to testing phases. And that’S because while the concept of induction charging is actually simple enough, applying it in the real world is not. Still, that's not stopping Volvo, which has announced it will start testing wireless charging systems with its XC40 Recharge model. To do so, it has created a small fleet of cabs for Cabonline, the largest cab company in Scandinavia.

The trials, which will take place where Volvo was founded, in Gothenburg, Sweden, are set to last for three years. Volvo says the driving conditions will require the vehicles to spend 12 hours a day on the road and that they will cover 100,000 km a year.
