I don’t own a hybrid or electric vehicle that needs to be plugged in. I think if I did, I would end up forgetting to plug it in at some point. Naturally, the time I forgot to plug it in would be when I had to be somewhere.
If you have an EV or have not considered one because of the need to plug it in, Evatran has a sweet new proximity charger that will take having to remember to plug in off your mind. The system has a charge plate that is installed on your car and a charger that sits in the garage.
When you come home all you have to do is pull up to the charger and the power starts flowing. The charging system is $3000, wireless option is $800, and installation will run around $500 making it an expensive proposition. The real downside is that the charger is only 80% efficient meaning it takes longer to charge the car.
