Battery models can be replaced on the road for 15 minutes
Tesla patented a mobile service station for its electric cars, which will serve for the rapid replacement of batteries.
The idea is to place these stations in locations that don’t yet have charging stations Tesla Supercharger. Owners of Tesla electric cars will be able to quickly replace an empty battery with a fully charged within 15 minutes.
In 2014 was opened the experimental station maintenance models where such substitution was to be made within 90 seconds. The actual replacement time was about 3 minutes and it was worth the fun $ 80.
The popularity of this service is not used, the owners prefer the Tesla Supercharger. However, the new service stations will allow owners of electric vehicles to change the usual route and go there, where before they would not dare to go.
