This road will charge your electric car

June 2019—As electric car battery ranges improve, you might wonder why putting a charging system in the road would make any sense. Sweden is installing a test kilometer to see how it works. Some of the benefits of charging while driving include being able to get by with a smaller battery which translates to a lighter, cheaper vehicle. Only main roads would need to have this technology. If the test proves successful, probably the first application will be bus routes.
