  1. This is happening at last! Years ago, battery swapping was mooted as an alternative to charging in situ, getting a full charge in a few minutes instead of having to wait for an hour or so. It never caught on in Europe but maybe it will now?
    It underlines the need for the whole business of charging/battery swapping or augmentation, to be done in dedicated areas on popular routes i.e. motorways/trunks roads, not tucked away in an industrial estate or middle of nowhere (where ENEL seems to put them!). And these 'areas' need to be where drivers 'used to' fill their fossil fuel tanks - petrol stations! It will give owners of service stations a chance to transit between the old and new technology painlessly and stay cost effective.
