It looks like the days of plugging in your mobile device to a 12-volt power outlet might soon be over, at least if you drive a Chrysler product. Beginning with the 2013 Dodge Dart, the company has announced it will be introducing a wireless in-car charging system.

The system uses a storage bin that measures 8.27 x 9.5 x 3.25 inches. Mounted below the center stack and in front of the console, it features an integrated charging grid that allows a smart phone or other portable device to be charged when placed on top of it (a special device casing with pins on it is required for your phone or other devices to be charged).

The wireless charging device, which will be offered through Chrysler’s Mopar Parts and Accessories division, will retail for $199.99 plus installation by your local dealer. It will be available starting this summer, timed for introduction alongside the new Dodge Dart.
