Tesla Motors Showing Off New Battery Swap System

By: Steve Wylde

Tesla Motors is in the process of announcing their new battery swapping system technology. This system enables Tesla to swap out a Model S battery in less than two minutes. The battery swap can be done without the driver even having to get out of their car and takes less time than it does to fill a car’s gas tank. Anyone who owns a Model S car park in a designated parking spot, at which time a platform will come out of the ground and disconnect the battery from the car.

It then goes back into the ground, where it throws away the dead battery, grabs a new one, rises out of the platform again and installs the battery in the car. Once this process has been completed it will be the driver’s responsibility to dispose of the old battery at a designated supercharge location. Car enthusiasts are raving about this system.
