A stretch of road outside Stockholm transfers energy from tracks of rail in the road, recharging the batteries of electric cars and trucks as they drive
The world’s first electrified road, which recharges the batteries of cars and trucks as they drive along it, has opened in Sweden.
The public road near Stockholm now has about 2km (1.2 miles) of electric rail embedded within it, transferring energy via a movable arm that attaches to the bottom of vehicles. Sweden’s roads agency plans to expand the scheme nationally. The design has been likened to that of Scalextric tracks.
