The eHighway was commissioned on Tuesday near the city of Frankfurt, the hybrid trucks are powered and charged by overhead cables that provide 670-volts direct-current which recharges the trucks batteries.

To make a successful connection the truck has to be moving at a speed less than 56 miles per hour, and when successfully connected it runs completely on electricity.
