The conductive charging method for the electric vehicles is the most widespread, since it is the simplest and has higher returns. In the last years, alternative charging technologies have been investigated. Between these wireless charging systems have been large diffusion and have been commercialized by some manufacturer. Wireless charging systems for electric vehicles have some advantages respect the wired ones, not obliging the user to connect physically the vehicle to the electric charging station. Assuming the efficiency declared by the manufacturer of wireless systems the authors, in this paper, estimate the maximum cost that wireless recharging systems can have to be, however, more favorable with respect to that of wired one. The estimation is developed by means of classical economic indexes, in the framework of Italian end European markets. The results show that, in the Italian market, there should be a 39% reduction in the price of the wireless system compared to its actual value, in order to make it more convenient than the wired one. This reduction is equal to 33% for the European market.
