Until another alternative energy form come around, electric cars are the wave of the future. To make them easy to charge, Evatran has developed a wireless charging system.

The base stations are made of a charging disc that sits on the floor of your garage or driveway. You then drive your car over the disc and it wirelessly charges the car's electric battery. You need a special adapter inside the engine to do the charging, but that's about it.

Evatran is testing the system with a handful of fleet Chevy Volts and is hoping to mass produce the units late in 2012. Convenience comes with a price tag as the units now are priced at $2,000 for an indoor unit and $3,00 for an outdoor unit. These prices are expected to drop as the technology develops.

Good luck with the public driving electric in mass, if it ever happens, start a tow company because they will be sitting on the sides of every road. I work with electric vehicles everyday. They suck in the winter, they suck in the heat....... batteries are ridiculously expensive and don't last worth a shit. Then you have the dimwitted public that leave them turned on with lights and are surprised when they don't go. That and they are incredibly ugly.

Don't worry.

The boys at MIT are developing batteries and materials that will make electric cars and home solar the future of energy.

What was the cost of an automobile in 1910 compared to a horse and buggy? What was the dependibility of the vehicles at the time?

Take the idea further and wire roads to supply energy directly to the vehicles while operating.

Why are they the wave of the future? Are you making some type of informed prediction? Why do you think that electric cars are better than hydrogen fuel cells? How is adding extra loads to the nations power grid going to reduce our dependence on fossil fuels?

They were doing that back in the 7os, how much progress have they made?

This is in no way a breakthrough. That is very old technology. Most of us already have cell phones & tooth brushes that charge up this way.

Yea I think its called inductive charging. The electricity is transfered using a magnetic field. My toothbrush charges the same way.

True, many people are too stupid to learn how to properly use an electric vehicle.

I would buy one when they figure out how to charge them with good thoughts, or prayers.

How far are they from developing a electric car that pollutes less than gasoline cars?

Oldsocks I saw a review of the Tesla last year. They sent the reviewers two of them right off the bat. The reason they soon found was the claimed 275+ miles per charge average was actually around 60 miles, and it took a day to charge the dam things. The first one batteries died after about 60 miles, the second one kept overheating and dying. They had to wait 2-3 hours between attempts to run the tests.

The fact is Tesla company exaggerated the reliability and mileage and charge times. THe car itself is originally a Lotus Elise body and structure, that is heavily modified and stuffed with something like a few thousand laptop like batteries, and a high torque electric motor. It weighs a lot more than the standard Elise, costs almost 3 times as much and although quick in a straight line, handles like a luxury liner.

Its a gimmick to sell and electric sporty car.

There's an electric car in your future.

Just a matter of time before liberals find a way to outlaw any other type of vehicle....except for those used by (Democrat) party officials.

Your car would have a metering device so you could swipe a card and buy electricity on the go.
Equip the interstates first. You would have battery power for around town and the parking spots would have the inductive sources as well to recharge your car while you shop/work.

We have the technology we just lack the determination to make it work.
