And Sweden is now turning a highway into a permanent electrified road - the first of its kind in the world.
On an electric road, cars and trucks can recharge while driving.

The Scandinavian country has pioneered electrified roads through several pilot projects including the world's first temporary electric road.
While much of the Electric Road System (ERS) focuses on trucks, a recent study suggested that private cars could also benefit.

Germany and Sweden have had demonstration facilities on public roads for several years, and France plans to procure a pilot section with an electric road. »
