Battery Swapping A Reality In China
Turns out that battery swapping is reality in China.
Check out this battery swap site outside of Suzhou, China, a city west of Shanghai.
The uploader of the image tells us that the swapping process is not as easy as with the Tesla Model S, but says the whole process is completed in 4 minutes.
Once inside the swap site, luggage is removed from the trunk and the works there manually removed 4 60 kg batteries. Less than 4 minutes later, fresh batteries are in and you’re on your way for another 80 km.
We believe this service is used on select Kandi electric cars.
