Sweden To Open World’s First Wireless Charging Highway In 2025 To Solve Battery Life Problem Of Electric Vehicles

The lack of charging stations is the main reason that hinders car owners from purchasing electric vehicles.

According to Hindustantimes, the Swedish government is planning to open the first highway capable of wireless charging for electric vehicles in 2025 to solve the battery life problem of electric vehicles.

It is understood that the expressway capable of wireless charging adopts the method of burying high-voltage coils underground, and then wirelessly charging vehicles through induction.

The working principle of this technology is very similar to Qi wireless charging in mobile phones. It is currently being tested on a domestic road called E20, which is located between the major Swedish cities of Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmö, and is expected to open to the public in 2025.

Authorities are also said to be planning to expand its scope to include some 3,000 kilometers of roads across the country.

In the past, the Swedish government has also opened a wireless charging road for heavy vehicles such as buses and container trucks, which is about 2 kilometers long, and the test cars will be powered by overhead cables.
