Last year, a similar pilot project was launched in Oslo, Norway. With wireless charging, multiple taxis can be charged at the same time without the need to queue.

At present, electric vehicles are becoming more common, a small number of rechargeable parking spaces in parking lots may not be enough, manufacturers and governments are looking for solutions.
