New York City Is Getting Wireless EV Chargers Disguised as Manholes

Imagine an electric Pepsi delivery truck in Manhattan. It makes dozens of stops at the same locations, day in and day out. Now what if at each stop — or every other stop — it could wirelessly top up its battery pack as the driver drops off another case of sugar water. That’s what Hevo Power is aiming to do with a new wireless charging system that blends into its surroundings by aping a manhole. New York City could be getting wireless electric-car charging stations disguised as manhole covers, Wired's Damon Lavrinc reports.
