Ford’s Clever Magnetic EV Charger Eliminates Fussy Cables
Many EV owners will know about the frustration of fiddling with bulky charging cables, especially in smaller, more congested spaces or during inclement weather. Ford’s idea dispenses with the cable, although the new challenge comes when aligning the vehicle’s port with the charging point.
To get around this, a certain amount of articulation would be incorporated into the magnetic charger’s design so that a physical connection is possible as long as the port is close enough to the charging point; in other words, your parking skills would have to be pretty poor for the charger to be inoperable.
Of course, just because a patent has been filed doesn’t mean that the tech will reach production, and it would be challenging to modify all existing charging points. Just getting the existing charging network up to speed is a challenge on its own.
Ford is the second best-selling EV automaker in America, only behind Tesla. That’s largely thanks to the success of the Mustang Mach-E and F-150 Lightning, two models that stand to benefit from the magnetic charger.
