Nissan has made a lot of news on the EV front lately: the company received a $1.6 billion loan from the Department of Energy to develop electric vehicles; it's partnering with Renault to build EV infrastructure at sites around the globe; and it's planning to drop its own EV into showrooms by 2012. Now, Nissan says it has developed a plug-free way to charge EV batteries via inductive technology (in much the same way that the 2010 Toyota Prius backpack we gave away charges cell phones). No gas lines, no plugs? Consider us amped. [GuardianUK via BusinessInsider]
