Sweden opens first electric road: Driving and charging at the same time!

Sweden opens first electric road

Sweden is at the cutting edge of this technology, which we now hope to introduce in other areas of the country and the world.

Sweden has opened the world’s first electrified road. The 1.2-mile route, between Stockholm Arlanda airport and a logistics site, will now actively charge cars and lorries as they travel along it using an innovative energy transfer system.

Plans are in place to expand the project throughout other parts of the country and the world.
