The first On-Line Electric Vehicle (OLEV) in the world has kicked off in South Korea, specifically at the Seoul Zoo in Gwacheon, Gyeonggi Province. The OLEV is the brainchild of the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), where it will receive all the juice required to get moving from an electric facility underground without having to rely on surface power lines, where this is made possible via a magnetic field which it transforms into electricity. Seoul City hopes that OLEVs will see further action within the city itself if this model vehicle proves successful. This is clearly one big step to move towards a greener environment, don’t you think so?
