UK tests wireless charging for electric taxis

A special test program has started in Nottingham. Its mission is to test the cost-effectiveness of wireless electric vehicle charging technology.

The UK investment of nearly $ 4.5 million represents the development of a “city cleanup” strategy. Its main premise is the gradual replacement of public transport vehicles from diesel to electric.

A six-month trial period involves the installation of a special module in selected taxis that allows wireless charging during parking. As the main advantage of this solution is a short refueling time without having to stand in line for frequently used, physical stations. Thus, the government not only improves public transport, but also checks the feasibility of such a decision if it wants to bring it into general use.

Recently, a similar solution was tested in Oslo, Norway.
