Abstract

A charging apparatus for an electric vehicle having electric storage means, comprising an electrical power source provided remotely from the vehicle; a charging connector electrically connected to the power source having a substantially elongate and cylindrical charging portion comprising a primary coil;a complementarily shaped tubular receiving portion mounted on the vehicle and adapted to receive the charging portion and comprising a secondary coil so that when the charging portion is fully inserted in the receiving portion, the primary coil and secondary coil are electromagnetically coupled together to transmit electric power from the primary coil to the secondary coil by electromagnetic induction to charge the storage means of the electric vehicle;control means adapted to detect when the charging portion is fully inserted in the receiving portion and only allow transmission of electric power from the primary coil to the secondary coil based on said detection; and communication means adapted to transfer data from the vehicle to data storage means remotely located from the vehicle via the receiving portion and the charging portion.
