Detroit, MI First Wireless EV Charging Roadway United States
Detroit worked with the Michigan Department of Transportation and Electreon on installing innovative road technology. Inductive coils underneath 14th Street wirelessly transfer electricity to passing electric vehicles with Electreon receivers. This installation runs through the Michigan Central Innovation District with a Ford E-Transit van used for the first test drive. Once completed, a one-mile stretch of wireless charging road will be used to test the technology's effectiveness.
