Why not CHANGE your flat battery for a charged one at some local location?

I'm sure it could be done. In-and-out in minutes instead of hours. No need to have charging leads all over the place. No need to upgrade all the local power lines.

The South Korean government is changing all telephone booths into battery-exchange units for their growing number of electric bikes.


Maybe because the battery is an large integral part of the car, rather than a small plug in part.

In Taiwan you can subscribe and just swap out your battery for your electric scooter as you go.

It works for bikes, and I’m sure will catch on globally, but it doesn’t works for cars, as Hugh points out.

Chinese electric car company Nio are working on just this kind of thing with Nio Power Swap - https://www.nio.com/nio-power

Clever stuff but would need standardisation or there would need to be a lot of battery stations for all the different manufacturers.

And what if you arrived at your battery station to find no available charged "spares".

You keep a gallon can of electricity in the boot for such emergencies.

Gosh no, that would fall foul of innumerable Health & Safety considerations.
In the event of a substantial impact the container could be compromised, which is likely to unleash a flow of pure electrical energy into the car. If this electrical surge gained entry to the cooling system it would pass through the water, instantly producing Oxygen & Hydrogen . . a very volatile mixture with disastrous consequences if a person wearing a silk shirt tried to open the door

We should make export models specially for the French market

Probably the same as if I arrived at a charging point and it was occupied or unserviceable.

Tesla already shows which charging points are/are not available for usage.

I'm sure the same thing could be applied to battery units
