with the first battery swapping stations opening later this year along the los angeles – san francisco corridor, tesla motors unveiled their battery swap-out system to the public for the model S electric vehicle. the demonstration highlights how a tesla service station can accomplish two battery swaps in the same amount of time it takes to fill a tank of gas at a regular pump. in the live demo, the californian auto manufacturer stages a race between an AUDI A8 at the fastest gas station in LA ( pumping 20 gallons per minute ). you can see action unfold in the video below.
