On Tuesday, May 7, the first electric highway eHighway was launched in the German federal state of Hesse. It is reported by The Local. The 5-kilometer test track was commissioned on the A5 between Langen and Weiterstadt, south of Frankfurt. The project called Elisa is tested in real traffic conditions by five logistics companies. Several times a day, five trucks on a diesel engine equipped with an additional electric motor will drive along the new road. As can be seen in the photo, specially designed trucks can be charged while driving under the established wires. The goal of the project is to collect and analyze data that may lead to project deployment in other parts of the project. During the experiment, experts pay attention to how an electric autobahn affects other transport and how it pollutes the air. Project developers believe that electric trucks will not have a negative impact on traffic. The Federal Ministry of the Environment has allocated EUR 14.6 million for the construction of the electric highway, and EUR 15.3 million has been allocated for its testing, which will last until the end of 2022. More than 70 million euros were spent on the development of hybrid trucks. Over the construction of the electric road worked truck manufacturer Scania, together with Volkswagen and Siemens. In total, three eHighway projects are being implemented in the country: in addition to Hesse, such autobahns will also be launched in Schleswig-Holstein and Baden-Württemberg.
