Battery swapping for electric cars refers to switching the vehicle’s current battery for a fully-charged one at a swap station.
The premise is that battery swapping would require less time than waiting for an electric vehicle battery to recharge at a charging station. Another plus with this option is that it’s less complicated than setting up new infrastructure for a new charging station.
Battery swapping isn’t common in the United States yet, but there are battery swapping networks elsewhere, including in India and China.
