Very true. Wireless power transmission is horribly inefficient.

Okay, how about you park (manually! ) next to a charging station, get out of the car, and a little robotic arm dressed up with a tuxedo sleeve and a white glove extends from your car and plugs it in for you?

You'll have all the convenience of wireless with none of the transmission losses.
