In the future you will recharge your electric car as if it were a Scalextric

In the future you will recharge your electric car as if it were a Scalextric

In the sixties and seventies in addition to the Scalextric with which we played at home, they were also known by this name to the great overpasses that populated the great Spanish cities in those years. Now we have known that a possible solution to the problem of recharging batteries in electric cars could also be inspired by electric cars. At least it is what the first road with rails inaugurated in Sweden demonstrates, and that it looks for that the electric cars can be recharged of constant form while they tread the highway.

Rails to recharge the battery

This new road is part of the Swedish plan to eliminate fossil fuels in twelve years’ time, and the implementation reminds us a lot of Scalextric cars that were powered by the energy collected by their rails.

As you can see in the video, the electric car will deploy an arm through which energy will enter the batteries. The procedure will be automatic when the car detects the rail, and will fold when it disappears. In addition, the highway manager can know in real time the consumption of each car individually and then load the consumer’s bill to the customer. This pilot experience will be extended to other countries such as the United States or Germany.
