Tel Aviv Tests Out Israel's First Electric Road

An Israeli startup is bringing an exciting new project to the roads of Tel Aviv. They've installed below-the-road electric charging beds to charge electric cars as they drive along the road.

Electric vehicles batteries are heavy, expensive and can not produce enough power for long distances. Israeli startup ElectRoad has developed a technology designed to power and charge vehicles by means of cordless power transfers as they drive.

According to ElectRoad the electric lines can be integrated into urban roads at a rate of one kilometer per day. Supply is coming directly from the power grid. A bus will be able to travel for up to 5 kilometers on a regular road after being charged on the electric road.

The company says in Europe about 60,000 buses per year are replaced meaning that the companies can pay back their investment within three years for the average electrified road.
