Street Lights with Electric Car Charging Sockets Prototyped

BMW has prototyped some street lights that contain charging sockets for electric cars. Munich will be the pilot location for the "charging lights." That's a pretty cool idea.

"Seamless charging infrastructure is essential if we want to see more electric vehicles on the road in our cities in the future," Peter Schwarzenbauer, Member of the Board of Management of BMW AG, said. The Munich pilot will install the first charging lights, which can be grafted straight onto the existing local authority street lighting infrastructure, BMW said.
