Engineers in England Will Begin Testing Roads That Charge Your Vehicle While You Drive On Them
BAY CITY, Mich. - Electric and hybrid car enthusiasts, listen up: engineers in England will begin testing roads that charge your vehicle while you drive on them! Recently an engineering firm in England stated that it was embarking on an 18-month trial testing roads that charge electric vehicles while they drive on them.
Chevy Volt drivers should definitely perk their ears up, because this could change the electric car game forever! Let's explain how it works... The charging lanes work by creating electromagnetic fields generated by electric cables buried beneath the road. A coil inside the bottom of a car picks up the field and converts it into electricity. The potential to recharge low emission vehicles on the move offers exciting possibilities. The government is already committing £500 million ($569 million) over the next five years.
Usually electric vehicles can only charge while they're in park and the power turned off which is way it's so exciting that engineers in England will begin testing roads that charge your vehicle while you drive on them. Now this technology is far off from being tested by the public, let alone being integrated into the American road system. However, it is refreshing to know that pushes are being made to make driving an electric vehicle easier, therefore more appealing, to the everyday driver.
