Mitsubishi Works On Wireless Remote Charging For Electric Vehicles

mitsu-wireless-chargeWhen it comes to a fully electric vehicle, it is without a doubt that its power reserves would carry the greatest interest among potential customers – will it be able to last long on the road? After all, charging stations for electric vehicles are not exactly commonplace at this point in time, but that does not mean they are non-existent. Arguments concerning long distance electric car trips would continue to dominate conversations of the like minded, but Mitsubishi has opted to stop talking and start doing something about it, where they have teamed up with a consortium that is co-led by Kyoto University alongside a group of Japan-based organizations, who have come together to work on a remote charging solution for electric cars.

The amount of brains in 22 companies and 13 universities, including Osaka University, Kajima Corp., and Omron Corp., should be able to do the trick, don’t you think so? The entire consortium wants to make long-distance electric vehicle charging a reality within the next half decade. This wireless charging capability will involve microwave transmissions, and we do hope that they achieve success sooner rather than later.
