How would I get the charging cable across the pavement [US = sidewalk] without it being a trip hazard and probably illegal (obstructing the highway)?
How long do you think it would take to swap batteries?
Like you I don't really see a future for swapping batteries in private vehicles.Partly this is for economic reasons but partly because I don't think people would trust getting a battery that might have been used for who knows what.
5 minutes would be a long time - and it would give you a much greater range.The car owner would not own the battery so why would s/he worry about that....R
I'm not sure about other countries but gas cylinders here in Australia, are not owned by the consumer.
