Blog: Dave LeggettBattery swap

Dave Leggett | 5 July 2013

With the demise of Better Place, I was wondering about the battery swap concept. 

Tesla, it seems, is still pretty interested in the battery pack swap as a way to overcome one objection to electric vehicles - that they take a long time to charge. Elon Musk recently got a load of supporters in a theatre for what was billed as a “title fight” between the Model S and gas-powered cars. The automated pack swap system appears to work pretty well and quickly, though it's a pity the camera is so far away...

Tesla expects the first battery pack swap stations to appear by the fourth quarter.
