UK motorways could soon have an in-road EV charging lane

Dylan Varian

Equipment installed beneath the road surface could soon be wirelessly charging EV vehicles while in motion on UK roads, diminishing the need for drivers to stop and charge their batteries.


A government funded department —Highways England — will be testing the technology off-road on test tracks pretty soon. If successful, the technology could be fitted on the UK’s motorways and major A roads, enabling drivers to travel long distances in their low emission vehicles without needing to stop and recharge.
