Even as officials try to get citizens across the country to adopt the electric car, one problem has remained: driving long distances on a charge. Now, Tesla hopes to do something about this issue with the development of a system that allows drivers to switch out their depleted battery with a completely charged one. Hawthorne, California was to be the site of a demonstration of this technology. The hope is that if someone were able to simply swap out their battery, they’d be able to go greater distances just as quickly as someone in a gas-powered automobile. Otherwise, they have to wait for the battery to charge completely before they can get going.
