Summary : Recent years have seen public road demonstrations of overhead contact lines technology used by hybrid and fully electric trucks in Sweden and California. More projects are being built including German Autobahns and Sweden’s Transport Authority which plans to make a 30 km pilot project to advance the development of a national road map for electrified roads for HDVs.
