Gretchen Whitmer declared in 2021 that the state would build the first EV charging road in the United States. ElectReon, an Israeli firm developing wireless charging infrastructure, has been awarded the contract to build it.
Electric vehicles would be charged while they are moving or parking on the road.
Similar highways have been contracted by ElectReon in Israel, Germany, Sweden, and Italy. According to the company’s CEO Oren Ezer, the deal with the Michigan Transportation department offers the company a chance to expand its presence in the United States:
According to Gretchen Whitmer, the highway as well as other efforts to improve sustainable infrastructure would help Michigan stay on the cutting edge of automotive technology and sustainability.
According to the current draft of Michigan’s goal of reaching carbon neutrality by 2050, infrastructure such as charging roads would be built in Michigan by 2030 to support 2 million electric vehicles on the road.
