Battery Swap Event


Model S is designed to allow a fast battery swap, exchanging your battery for a fully charged battery in less than half the time it takes to refill a gas tank. This offers Model S drivers another, even faster option when recharging while driving long distances.



I think they can give this service for free the first 5 years then you can pay a fee (not greater than 5k, that makes it 1k per year) for another 5 years or just keep your battery and charge it just like they do right now.

If developed a culture "where people can lend and swap batteries of each other" it can work smoothly. I think Tesla needs at least 5% market place to make it happen.

Any idea yet of the price of a battery swap?
