The electrified road developed by Electreon is the first of its kind on the entire North American continent. It recharges electric cars using coils located under the road surface – but only if the wireless charging function is available. According to the creators, they are completely safe for pedestrians, animals and other cars.
For now this is just an experiment. Electreon notes that the spread of such roads will help popularize electric vehicles: if there are many of them, it will be possible to reduce the battery capacity, making electric cars lighter, more environmentally friendly and cheaper. In addition, drivers will not be afraid of getting stuck on the highway far from charging stations – charging will be right under the wheels.
