Nissan has released the first teaser images and video of a wireless recharging system that has been dubbed the "Fuel Station of the Future."

Jointly developed with the Foster + Partners architecture firm, the system appears to be a curbside wireless recharging device for electric vehicles such as the Nissan Leaf. 

The company hasn't said much about the device but the video reveals it has LED indicators that show the location of the inductive charger.  Once a driver parks next to the device, the lights change from green to blue to indicate that wireless recharging has started.

There's no word on technical specifications but Nissan suggested the Fuel Station of the Future is an evolution of the 7 kW wireless charging device that was announced last month. That particular device can recharge the 60 kW battery pack currently in developing overnight.  Nissan also revealed that particular battery will enable cars to have a range of approximately 500 km (310 miles).

In a statement, Nissan Europe's General Manager of Advanced Product Strategy said “The world around us is changing, and we find that tremendously exciting. With the rise of connected cities, there is the capacity for fueling to be built into the very fabric of our day-to-day lives - independent infrastructure could be a thing of the past.”

The Fuel Station of the Future will be unveiled in March, so expect a debut at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show.
