explained that having cumbersome cables and plugs to fiddle around with contradicts the company’s idea of being premium – so they’re either making it wirelessly-chargeable or not at all…
Really, is it THAT hard to plug something in? Wireless charging is cool and convenient, but seriously...

The only place I can see wireless charging being worth it is in public parking lots, but then you have the problem of hitting them with snow plows... so large parking ramps?

Either way, if you only charge with inductive charging you are going to waste around $50 per year worth of electricity in inductive losses.

Just like premium valet spots for supercars & premium luxury cars at top hotels & high end restaurants, those establishments will be first to afford/have 'wireless' (dunno if that is yet the correct term to use) induction chargers for those 'selected' fashionable EVs.
