If you thought large vessels couldn’t go electric, think again.

In Norway they have been using electric ferries for more than five years, but earlier this year the government put the largest electric ferry in the world into service.

The 457-foot-long Bastø Electric can make 20 to 24 crossings of the 5.67-mile Oslo Fjord per day. With a top speed of 13 knots, it can carry 200 cars and 600 people. The ferry gets supercharged overnight with a cable that is as thick as a human being.
