Developed for the nation’s Trolleybus Optimisation Système Alimentation (TOSA) pilot project, the buses in Geneva, Swizerland, feature batteries mounted on the top of the vehicle, which are flash charged when the bus stops under a charging station.

A robotic arm connects the bus to the charging station and after 15 seconds, the bus has enough charge to run all day, according to CNET
