Could Roads Recharge Electric Cars? The Technology May Be Close.

"Electric vehicles are getting a lot of buzz. Yet sales of electric vehicles, or EVs, are expected to amount to less than 4 percent of passenger vehicle sales in the United States in 2021.

(Currently, there are about 43,000 charging stations, according to the U.S. Department of Energy.)”
