Tesla could revolutionize the electric car industry by solving one of the main reasons why buyers don’t make the switch from gasoline – range anxiety. Tesla already announced plans to expand its Supercharger network across the US, and now the automaker is working on another fix to keep Tesla Model S owners on the road. Tomorrow Tesla will demonstrate a new way for owners to swap out their drained batteries for fully charged units – and it’s faster than the time it takes to fill up a tank of gas in a traditional car.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk posted on his Twitter page that a “live pack swap demo” will be unveiled tomorrow at Tesla’s design studio in Hawthorne, California (Tesla and Elon Musk have not announced all the official details). But the good news is that once the new swappable batteries are in place drivers will have an even more convenient way to keep their Model S on the road.
Tesla will unveil the new swappable batteries tomorrow night at 8pm PST.
