Stockholm is set to experiment with new electric passenger ferries that could make commuting along its waterways just as fast as — and altogether greener than — driving by car.  

Currently the world’s fastest electric passenger vessel, according to the Swedish company that makes it, the Candela P-12 will start serving a passenger route between central Stockholm and the suburban island of Ekerö in 2023. Trials are due to start on another electric ferry, Green City Ferries’ Beluga 24, the following year.
