Sweden opens ‘globally unique’ electrified road

Sweden has unveiled a new stretch of road which allows, for the first time, cars and trucks to charge their batteries while driving.

1.2 miles (2km) of electric rail has been installed between an airport cargo terminal and a logistics depot near Stockholm. The road works by hooking up cars to the ground rail via a moveable arm, much in the same way that trams are connected to overhead power cables.
