Sweden opens new road that charges electric vehicles like real-life slot cars

( CNN) For anyone who used to play with slot automobiles as small children, Sweden’s new electrified road might bring back some memories.

In the first of its kind, the Scandinavian country is trialling the world’s first public road which permits electric vehicles to recharge while driving. Similar to a slot-car way, vehicles are able to connect to an electric rail that’s embedded into the road.

Sweden has a goal of achieving a wholly fossil fuel free vehicle fleet by 2030, so this electrified road is an example of several projects the Swedish Transport Administration has created to develop and test technologies that may be able to help the country reach its target.
