The 2015 Cadillac ATS adds Powermat wireless charging

75

And GM's quiet about it, but the CUE system also supports the Qi charging standard

Update: Cadillac has confirmed to Android Central (and a tip of the hat to Slashgear here) that the wireless charging system we're talking about here also supports the Qi standard, which explains why there's a Nexus 5 in the video. It also explains why it wasn't mentioned in this Powermat-specific press release. Original follows.

Powermat and Cadillac today announced that the 2015 Cadillac ATS (and the 2014 Escalade as well) will have Powermat wireless charging installed when the car launches this fall. That is, you place your phone on a rubber pad, and it charges. No having to plug it in, and you can charge while connected to your car via Bluetooth. Which is nice.

Or, rather, it would be nice. If you actually had a device that used the Powermat standard.
