Electric and hybrid vehicles are on the rise. In order to help make them more efficient, the technology that supports them is getting a lot of research, including bringing automotive companies together. BMW and Daimler are teaming up for wireless charging initiatives to help get rid of a lot of the hassle of charging your hybrids and EVs.
A lot of here in the states definitely know the name BMW, considering you are currently on Valley BMW’s blog, but you may not be familiar with the name Daimler. Well, rest assured they are not new to the automotive world. Daimler is the parent company to Mercedes-Benz, which is another premium luxury brand.
Even though the announcement was made about how BMW and Daimler are teaming up for wireless charging, not a whole lot of specifics were given. What we do know is that the wireless charging will feature something about a coil inside the vehicle that can connect wirelessly to a coil that is placed in a stagnant place such as a driveway or garage.
Since we cannot even get full information on the wireless charging from these two German juggernauts, it is obvious that there are no plans to release one of these models in the near future. Be sure to check back with us on here, though, for future updates!
