China appears to be a leader in maglev technology and continues to find innovative ways to use it.

A car equipped with magnetic levitation (maglev) technology has been successfully tested on a highway in East China’s Jiangsu province, according to an article by China Daily.

Provincial transport authorities are testing a new highway lane for maglev cars. The experiment saw a 2.8-tonne car float 35 millimeters above the road and run smoothly on a highway without crashing or veering.
