Magnetically levitated trains use electricity to replace the fuel, and also use electricity to replace the wheels...

It remains to be seen, but these trains have another advantage in that there are no wheels which means no friction. Less energy means less cost to move the train which means more fuel-efficient.

Is it possible to have levitated automobiles, where the engery comes from within the auto, or truck? And are more efficient than currently in fashion?
