New vehicles with Qi Wireless Charging included

I’ve been scouring the web to figure out which 2018/19 SUVs come with wireless charging included. Anyone know of a website/list of manufacturers that include this in their vehicles? Looking for factory install, not after market dealer installs.

Thanks!

Pointless feature as most are not optimized for how a phone will sit on the pad. Case in point. My buddy has a BMW with the QI charger and can't fit a iPhone 8 as the space is too small. Hyundai but I forgot which model the phone doesn't even sit on the pad properly and any movement and it stops charging. I'm sure there's others. I'll be honest this is really a strange must have in a car, might as well just go aftermarket with something that actually works like the pitaka products which have QI chargers built into their phone mounts and it's magnetic so it's easy to put on/off and will always charge regardless of movement.

I've got a '18 X3 with the wireless charging pad. Works great for my Iphone XS and no issues as what the previous poster mentions. It's not super fast in charging, but good for topping up the battery

Kia and Hyundai SUVs should have them (if not, the higher trims would have as std)

Have you tried a larger phone? XS is smaller than iPhone 8. This particular BMW that couldn't fit the larger phone was a 3 series, but the iPhone X fits just fine which is identical to XS.

I like my CivicX Wireless Charging. It fits my Note 9 with a case which works better wit it anyways so it doesn't slide off.
It's rare just depends how you drive. LOL

The XS Max should fit. There is still a lot of room around the phone when the XS is on there
