Re: The Future of Automobiles...

It's great to see the Tesla apparently doing well. I'd also love to see the American automobile industry surge again, obviously.

You think it looks a little like Ford's Evos concept, or am I imagining that?

A better idea is to swap the entire battery with a fully recharged one, and let the facility recharge it and swap it for the next customer, etc.
That sounds really impractical and cumbersome. The batteries are in the car and quite large at this time, they are also very expensive (I think around 5 or 6 grand).
Yeah, the Tesla's battery weighs over a ton. Routine "swapping" wouldn't be real practical.
