Under-Road Wireless Charging for EVs

Project Description

Highways England today announced its plan to start off-road testing of wireless charging tech that could allow electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrids to travel much longer distances on the UK’s major roads without needing to refuel. Trials are expected to start before the end of the year, just as soon as the right vehicle and under-road tech “to replicate motorway conditions” has been sourced. These should run for around 18 months, after which the hope is to progress to testing the wireless charging infrastructure on real roads.
