Plugless power is coming

An announcement from Evatran, a company developing Plugless Power for electric cars. The company is developing a product that eliminates the cord by automating the charging of EVs.

Plugging in your electric vehicle, or extended-range hybrid, may soon be a thing of the past. Evatran is developing a "hands-free" proximity charging system with the engineering team from Colorado company Syncroness.

The idea is to pull up to the Plugless Power system and get your car recharged. Evatran has a short animation depicting the process. The company will not have a product available until fall 2010, according to a press release.
