Elonroad is a hightech electric road concept. It auto charges all types of electric vehicles when parked as well as when driving.
The electric road concept “Elonroad” offers a charging infrastructure for all electric vehicles. The electric charging system is both an automatic park-charger without cables and an electric road solution for charging vehicles while driving. It works in cities, highways, parking, taxi lines.
How it works
ELONROAD involves a conductive rail laid on top of the road.
A conductive picup under the vehicle connects to the electric rail via sliding contacts.
The rail is only active when covered by the vehicle, this makes it safe in city environment.
Together with Lund University we have built a 200 meter test track outside Lund, Sweden. Its been tested since 2017 and works well!

The electric road was funded by the Swedish Energy Department by 1,6 million EUR and support from the local Energy company Kraftringen..
Lund University has made calculations on the economic feasibility from a societal perspective. The conclusion is that electric road is beneficial if both trucks and cars can use the infrastructure.
“It´s the dawn of a new industry and an opportunity to build a sustainable world.”
Road traffic uses a large amount of fossil fuel with associated CO2emissions. Electric cars will increase energy efficiency for transport and reduce greenhouse gases by using green energy. With an electric road you can charge while driving. This will increase the driving distance without the need of large batteries. We believe this will encourage a conversion to green transport.
