Volvo Group plans wirelessly charged bus line

If all goes according to plan, Volvo Group will build a 300- to 500-meter (roughly 1000 to 1640-foot) strip of electric road in central Gothenburg as early as 2015. This should complement Volvo’s upcoming all-electric “ElectriCity” bus line, allowing the company to study the benefits and drawbacks of wireless charging as it applies to heavy vehicles.
