Tesla Unveils New Battery Swap Pilot

Dec 23, 2014 by Will (Oh Good Staff)

Tesla, owned by our favorite Billionaire Elon Musk, is launching their new battery swap program. This program will launch in California and give Tesla drivers the option to swap out their depleted batteries at select venues in less time than it would take to fill a tank of gas.

This pilot program is intended to test the demand for these stations, and it is reported that the battery sway will take less than 3 minutes to complete and send the drivers on their way. But at what cost? Don’t worry, the full battery sway will cost less than the price of a full tank of gas for a premium sedan, I’d say this is well worth it.


I was skeptical of this process, and I’m sure many others are as well, how could Tesla swap out your entire battery in less than 3 minutes? If you want to see the process in action, check out the video below from Telsa comparing their battery swap technology and your traditional gas station.
