May 15, 2018—The world's first electrified road launched in Stockholm and the Swedish government's road agency formed a nation-wide map for expanding the electric rail, reported Energy Digital.

The road works through energy transferred from the rail via moveable arm on the bottom of a vehicle, according to the report.

The rail costs about $1.23 million for every kilometer, making it about 50 times cheaper than an average urban tramline. The road also helps Sweden towards its target to achieve independence from fossil fuels by 2030.
