Volvo Car Group has been a partner in an advanced research project that has studied the possibilities of inductive charging for electric vehicles – testing the technology with a C30 Electric. Inductive charging uses an electromagnetic field instead of a cord to transfer energy between two objects. An induction coil creates an alternating electromagnetic field from a charging base station. A second induction coil in the portable device picks up power from the electromagnetic field and converts it back into energy that charges the battery.
