Officials have announced that the first wireless EV-charging road system in America will be built near Michigan Central Station in Detroit. The project will be completed by Israeli startup Electreon. The mile-long public road will be designed to wirelessly charge electric vehicles while they are in motion or stationary. It is expected to complete by 2023. The charging pilot will be funded through $1.9 million from the Michigan Department of Transportation and an unspecified contribution from Electreon. The project will also be supported by Ford Motors, DTE Energy Co. and Detroit city. The road will be located within Ford’s Michigan Central mobility innovation district.
