This is being billed as the world's first wirelessly charged electric vehicle.
Called the on-line electric vehicle (OLEV), it is powered from an electrical charging strip planted about 5cm under the road surface.
The technology is being piloted in a theme park in Seoul, South Korea.
The OLEV is charged wirelessly over a 400-metre long stretch of electrical strip and runs an additional 400 meters on the charged battery.
The electrical strip creates a magnetic field that generates magnetic force. The magnetic force is sent wirelessly to the vehicle and converted into electricity, which is then used to power the vehicle.
The vehicle's builders say they have undertaken numerous tests to ensure that the magnetic field used in the system poses no health risks.
In the long term the Seoul Metropolitan Government plans to introduce OLEVs as part of its public bus transportation system.
