BMW advances electric vehicals with wireless charging

The future of cars is headed down the path of electrification. As more EVs begin to hit the streets, the challenge of charging convenience will become paramount to the consumer, and BMW is ready to deliver the easiest way to charge; by simply parking your car. Soon, BMW 530e owners will be able to charge their luxury sedans without a cable. Starting in July 2018, BMW will begin producing its wireless inductive charging system aimed at its latest plug-in hybrid vehicles. We know this includes the 530e, but no word if the automaker's flagship electric cars, the i3 and i8, will be able to make use of inductive charging. BMW had previously mentioned that the 530e was its target vehicle for the wireless charging system, and sources have indeed confirmed to Car Magazine that BMW is readying a deal to first push these new chargers to owners of the 530e iPerformance models.
