    If there is to be a future for all-electric vehicles, surely this is it!

    Tesla's new battery swap station will give electric vehicles a full charge in 3 minutes flat | Inhabitat - Sustainable Design Innovation, Eco Architecture, Green Building . The cool thing is I actually thought of this concept years ago. Next time I have an ingenious idea maybe I should do something with it... Then again I suppose others thought of this previously too. Just saw a nice clean Tesla Model S cruising around in my town the other day, too. It's a nice looking ride. 3.2 second 0-60, 155 mph top speed, sport tuned suspension... Also just read this about their 85 kWh battery-powered trims:
    • "8 year, infinite mile battery and drive unit warranty." That is pretty impressive.


    Anyway Tesla has always been an industry leader in the electric vehicle market. This concept could take that leadership to a whole new level in several years when the infrastructure is there.

    If they can get the price point down to the Camery range I'll look at one

    I probably wouldn't do a battery swap until mine went bad.
