David Bott, director of programmes at the Technology Strategy said: If you look at handheld inductive charging is a proven — the fundamental science that it will work. I you’ll end up plugging electric in at night for efficiency, and by day using for on-the-go recharging.

Nissan has beyond mere wireless bays. It hopes to scale the up even further as a series of laid into the surface of electric vehicle lanes on our and motorways, theoretically enabling to charge as they drive. Nissan admits that it has no idea on how much it would how long the designated lane have to be, or how fast the battery be recharged.

Bott said he was sceptical such charging lanes be practical: It’s scientifically but it’s whether it’s and feasible is another matter.

As well as inductive its technological solutions include fast-charging facilities, which hope to see in place in shopping car and motorway service stations. So you’re shopping, or having a cup of the battery will refill to 80% of its in about 25 minutes, explained Haddad, general manager of strategy and planning at Nissan
