Plugless Power has begun developing a wireless charger for the Tesla Model S, due to be released in April.
Currently, the firm has already created systems for the Chevrolet Volt and Nissan Leaf. The plugless power system will initially only be available for rear wheel drive Model S sedans. However units for dual motor cars will be available later on in 2016.
A spokesperson for Tesla said: “Plugless is not yet available for Tesla Roadster, Model X or Model 3. Our engineers are hard at work to bring Plugless to all Tesla models.”
The wireless charger is a 7.2 kW system that needs a 50 amp circuit and can be installed in a garage or outdoors. The technology has the capacity to add 20 miles of range to a Model S for every hour that the car is parked on top of the charging pad.
