Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
The technology that asdf is asking about already exists. It's called a "trolleycar", that is a trolleybus with a car form factor.

That would be a way for electrical cars to refuel in transit.

Asdf's transducing car has no "freedom" advantage over trains in that it still needs to run on a dedicated road. The real advantage of cars in that respect is that it allows off-roading. There's also the individual freedom aspect of "this is my own vehicle I'm riding".

A society committed to the notion that government is always bad will have bad government. And it doesn't have to be that way. — Paul Krugman
