If you are one of the intrepid sorts who has invested in a Nissan Leaf or Chevrolet Volt, you might be eligible for a break on wireless electric vehicle charging technology from Evatran.
The company, which developed the Plugless Power electric vehicle charging technology, is giving a $150 rebate card to the first 500 Nissan Leaf or Chevrolet Volt owners that reserve the product. The company figures that money could pay for up to six months of charging a vehicle.
The reservations are a way for Evatran to gauge early interest in the product. You aren't actually committed to buying Plugless Power later if you opt out. The technology is supposed to be available starting in the third quarter of 2012, after Evatran conducts some trials earlier in the year.
