Say goodbye to unruly dangling power cords in your vehicles when you buy the all-new 2013 Dodge Dart. It is the first vehicle to offer in-vehicle wireless charging. If you recall, Chrysler was also the first to get rid of heavy, bulky owner manuals from its vehicles. The all-new 2013 Dodge Dart will arrive in dealerships in the second quarter of 2012.
Pietro Gorlier, President and CEO of Mopar, said that Mopar makes it a point to find every chance it could get to simplify the lives of its customers. He said that the industry-first in-vehicle wireless charging system is “perfect” for connected customers who are always on the go.
At just below the center stack and in front of the center console, Mopar placed a seamlessly integrated power bin for easy access. It measures 8.27 inches by 9.5 inches by 3.25 inches. When customers place their battery-powered device on this bin, it activates a built-in charging grid. Charging begins when the vehicle is started. It comes with a phone case designed for various smartphones.
To get Mopar in-vehicle wireless charging, the consumers would have to pay $199.99, plus installation (part number 82213216). The new Dodge Dart features a modern distinctly Dodge design with its great exterior proportions and Dodge cues such as "racetrack" taillamps and signature front grille.
The exterior doesn’t just look good; it offers an outstanding aerodynamic performance and a responsive, pleasant driving experience. The Dart is the first Chrysler Group vehicle to be using Fiat Group architecture. It is based off the critically acclaimed Alfa Romeo Giulietta.
