Nissan Leaf and Chevy Volt owners, are you ready for wireless charging of your electric vehicles? If so, Bosch and Evatran are ready for you. The two have inked an agreement to bring the Plugless Level 2 Electric Vehicle Charging System to consumers.

Evatran developed the wireless charging technology and Bosch will take care of installation. It won’t be a cheap offering when it becomes available next month, with starting prices around $3,000 (this does not include applicable taxes, shipping, or installation of the parking pad and control panel, but it does include basic installation of the vehicle adapter).

In exchange for the convenience of not needing to physically plug in every night, this hefty price tag might be worth it for some. Bosch said it is offering up some financing options to help those who don’t have that kind of money sitting around, including a $0-down, five-year, 2.99-percent-interest loan on charging stations for installations totaling $3,500 and above.

The installation process is a two-part affair. A Bosch-certified electrician will install the home infrastructure portion of the system, and Bosch Car Service centers will install the on-vehicle components. The company will coordinate the entire process and provide any necessary post-installation support.
