The idea of an electrified road is not new, but barely anyone has ever driven on one. That's because the technology is new enough that it only exists in limited research situations. After all, not many people know how electric vehicles work, much less that it's possible to recharge them while they move in the right situations.
Called dynamic charging, this kind of in-motion power set-up is now up and running in California. Set up by Siemens, the first electric highway in the United States is now available for specific trucks moving between the Ports of L.A. and Long Beach.
