Auto Monday – Tesla Model S battery swap

Tesla Model S

Tesla Motors Inc., manufacturer of the all-electric sedan, unveiled a system to swap battery packs in its electric cars in about 90 seconds. They will roll out the battery-swapping stations later this year, beginning along the heavily-traveled route between Los Angeles and San Francisco and then in the Washington-to-Boston corridor.
