+ - Tesla to build its own battery-swap stations->

Submitted by lfp98
lfp98 (740073) writes "Just a month after the collapse of independent battery-swap company Better Place, the uniquely successful maker of luxury electric cars, Tesla, has announced it will provide its own battery-swap capability for its Model S sedans. The first stations will be built adjacent to Tesla's charging stations on the SF-to-LA route, and a swap will take no longer than filling a gas tank. From the article: "A battery pack swap will cost between $60 and $80, about the same as filling up a 15-gallon gas tank", Musk said. "Drivers who choose to swap must reclaim their original battery on their return trip or pay the difference in cost for the new pack.""
