The Online Electric Vehicle may change the whole transportation system as we know it--and that's quite a feat considering the eco-friendly overhaul it has currently been going through. Created in Seoul, South Korea, it's a unique sustainable vehicle that relies on the road to recharge.

The Online Electric Vehicle is currently going through a test run at an amusement park before potentially becoming part of a bus route in Seoul. Charging via electric strips buried in the ground, it uses a battery one-fifth the size of those used in standard electric cars and does away with those pesky overhead wires.
