    The scoop in that article is battery swapping. If they are right, Tesla will roll out commercial battery swapping with $60-80 per swap price if you come back and pick up your original battery on the return. That's news.

    Yeah, I was wondering if they had any new info regarding battery swaps. Got interested when I saw this image, but then I read the caption.

    The news (if there is any) is 1) that Tesla really is building some swap stations for customers to use (rather than just saying they will and demo-ing the tech to get the ZEV credit boost); and 2) the pricing assumption that one will travel round-trip.
