Toyota rolled out the Prius in 2000 and ever since then it has become the bastion of eco-friendliness. Many imitations have come and gone, but the Prius has continued to thrive and grow its family with models like the Prius c, Prius v and Prius Plug-in. Now Toyota is continuing to look for ways to better both their design and their environment. New tests have been run to discover if wireless charging is a viable option for future Prius models.
Market Watch Reports, “Toyota has announced that it will begin actual verification testing of its new wireless battery-charging system for electric vehicles, one that charges the battery of a plug-in hybrid or a pure-electric car by having the car park on top of it. Toyota’s TM -0.48% charging system uses magnetic-resonance technology. This method transmits electricity by using magnetic resonance that results from changes in magnetic field intensity between a coil positioned on the ground under the car and a receiving coil built into the underside of the vehicle.”
