The best one I have seen personally is on the Tesla Model 3. All but the cheapest $35k version have an area in the center console where you can slide your phone into a charging port. You can configure that port for whatever phone you have. BUT, it only seems to work with a "naked" phone, or one with a fairly slim case. If it's in an Otterbox or similar, it's too big to fit.
There's another car that has a slot with a built-in Qi charger, but I forget which one it is.
