Electric vehicles are quite obviously the next big wave in the automotive industry, but charging options aren’t quite yet ubiquitous. And even if you happen to find a charging station, you might have to wait for someone else to finish. The folks at Volkswagen have developed an EV charging robot that comes to you, no matter what space you’re parked in (and it might even emit R2 D2-like sounds?). The charging robot is 100% autonomous, meaning it can come to your vehicle via a command app, communicate with it to open the charging port door, connect to it, charge, and the de-couple. It makes use of a mobile energy storage unit that can be returned to a charging station, and the robot can then pick up another one that’s fully charged to service the next vehicle. It will come to market in 2021. Watch the video to see it action, and let’s hope it can also fetch you a hot cup o’ joe while it juices up your Tesla.
