Possibilities

WiTricity said in a release, “Toyota has identified this technology as a key differentiator in the marketplace because of its seamless operation and convenience.”

A key question will be if WiTricity can keep losses to a minimum. The industry standard is about 90 percent efficiency, or a 10 percent transmission loss.

Toyota has already explored wireless charging in the Avalon – for cellphones. The car has an optional pad that will charge any phone dropped on it. But Giler pointed out that the Avalon system uses multiple inductive coils, not a magnetic resonance system. Magnetic resonance offers the possibility of being able to recharge multiple devices at once.

multiple:複合的、多樣的、並聯系統

Anticipation

The release date of the LE is unclear. Nissan had originally said 2014, but then it delayed the car sa it waited for new developments in wireless charging.

Said Giler: “We envision a world in which wireless charging accelerates the adoption of clean, green electrified vehicles. To have Toyota, the world’s leading carmaker, licensing our intellectual property, underscores the importance of the technology.” Toyota did not issue its own statement at the same time.
