Sweden Opens Up Electric Highway Called eRoadArlanda

In September 2017, an 18-ton truck electric truck started transporting goods between Arlanda and the PostNord terminal in Rosersberg. It was originally powered the “old-fashioned” way, with a built-in battery that was charged at a charging station, but it can now also recharge while driving thanks to the conductive electric rail in the road. Perhaps most interesting is that the road is set up to bill the driver for the amount of electricity the car pulls from the road as it moves. Exactly how this will work once the system is up and running for everyone is an interesting question, and one we assume will require extra effort by the Swedish Transport Administration (STA). The eRoadArlanda project was started in June 2013.
