The 2013 Dodge Dart will not only mark the return of an iconic car in the summer of 2012, it will mark at automotive first — wireless charging for electronic devices.
Called a power bin and measuring 8.27" by 9.5" by 3.25", the charger, made by Chrysler Croup's Mopar division, is installed just below the center stack and in front of the center console.
The bin has a built-in charging grid activated when customers place in their battery-powered device. The unit begins to charge when the vehicle is started. A phone case, specifically designed for a variety of smartphones, is required and included with the feature.
Mopar in-vehicle wireless charging is available for $199.99, plus installation.
