    New Battery Upgrade and Effect on Resale Values

    Now that Tesla has an operating battery swap station, it got me to thinking.

    ~1 Year Later: Where are the battery swap stations?

    It is soon one year since Tesla announced battery swap. Still there to my knowledge aren't any swapping stations online. Has Tesla changed plans? Has anyone seen swapping station under construction?

They also had a silver ring around them. Could these be 20s? is the silver ring around them just the glare from...

    Model S sans battery

    After having announced fast battery swapping, I wonder if the next logical step might be a slight change in the business model. Why doesn't TESLA offer the option to buy a model S without any battery. Swap in as needed. Pay as you go. You would be charged for the swap plus a time based fee...

    Battery Swapping/Rental for the Model S

    Mods: I couldn't come up with a better sub-forum for this, please move if you think it belongs elsewhere. Theory is clear - Model S battery packs can be exchanged, and under the right circumstances it could be done relatively quickly. However, I've consided the current reality with some...
