WINNING THE WAR ON GAS:

First Inductively Charged City Bus System Now Rolling : One South Korean city started testing them yesterday. (Francie Diep,  08.06.2013, Popular Science)

Here's one way you could charge electric cars in the future. A South Korean city is testing electric buses that get their charge from cables buried underneath the road.

The cables create magnetic fields that a device on the underside of the buses converts into electricity. (In principle, they're like enormous versions of the induction power that charges toothbrushes and smartphones wirelessly.) The charging works both while the buses are driving and when they're sitting still.
