Mopar first with inductive charging

by David Zatz on

Chrysler’s  Mopar® division is making in-vehicle wireless charging available on the 2013 Dodge Dart, set to arrive this summer. The industry-first setup uses an integrated power bin, 8.27 inches by 9.5 inches by 3.25 inches, below the center stack; its charging grid is activated when customers place a battery-powered device in the bin (if the car is running). A phone case is required and included. The system (part number  82213216) retails for $200; installation is extra.

Update from Automotive News: the system is supplied by Jvis USA, which operates in five countries but is based in “suburban Detroit.”

David Zatz founded Allpar in 1998 (based on a site he had begun in 1993-94), after years of writing reviews for retail trades.
