First Plugless Power Installation In Canada – Video
Here is a video report on the first installation of a PLUGLESS wireless charging system in Quebec.
It contains unique photos from the installation process and video presenting how it really works in the case of a Chevrolet Volt user.
As it turns out, the driver…who made the video (Guy, also known as Driverguy01 around here in the comments – hat tip to you!) sees a light indicator and gets some sort of numerical score showing how well the vehicle is aligned, which might be useful in the beginning.

Guy says of the system:
“I have this system and i would not go back to the plug, ever. No more than the gas station… unless I need it. People who reject this have no idea. It is the future, period. I am so surprised a lot of EV pioneers think the plug will be the norm for a long time, that’s like saying wifi wont catch on because you get faster speeds when plugged.
The cost for the adapter install under the car is under 2 hours work at certified dealer.
Install at home will be a little bit more than regular L2, 3 holes to drill for induction pad placement and pairing of the car to the CP (maybe half an hour more).
Efficiency is about 85 to 89%, so for me, $50/year more…. i can afford that for not having to plug in with a smile!
Here is my video of my install:”
