To promote Volvo’s new XC90 T8 Twin Engine, we see that this SUV is the first plug-in hybrid to be powered by gas, electricity and other vehicles. 

Over a two-day stretch in Southern California, Volvo and Grey NY used a custom peristaltic pump placed over the roadway that, when vehicles drove over it, generated electricity to fuel a nearby charging station to which the  XC90 T8 was connected.

Chronicling this unique transfer of power was this film titled Highway Robbery produced by 1stAveMachine and directed by Bob Partington, Jordan Fein and Hunter Baker.
