We all know that electric cars can’t refuel as quickly as their internal combustion engined counterparts, which is why we’ve seen several attempts over the years to establish battery swap stations for electric cars.
The most successful to date was the Better Place battery swap system, which operated in Israel and parts of Denmark. But while it managed to build a network of battery swap stations, the company eventually declared bankruptcy.
Since then, Tesla has also tried to work on a battery swap idea, but again, with limited success.
If battery swapping is such a great idea then (and charging still takes longer than battery swapping) what’s holding it up?
We explain all in the video above.
