BMW has cast an eye on the premium market electric car market to play a huge role down the road where automobiles are concerned, as they have already introduced the fully electric i3 and i8 plug-in hybrid sports car. Both of these models happen to be specially designed to be able to charge up quickly thanks to the BMW i Wallbox, and that is not good enough for the German auto manufacturer who want to introduce an induction charging system so that electric vehicles will be an even more attractive alternative to the masses.
