What if Apple buys Tesla and make it so you can’t remove the battery and have to buy a whole new car every three years? :-?

The only PITA thing I see is when you run out of charge and you have to stand around for like an hour filling up. Especially in some hick town with weird people hanging around and you just wanna get the fuck outta there.


Until there is a fast enough charging station to charge in a couple of minutes or there is a drive over wireless charging mechanism with perhaps a bit of solar charging mixed in, I think the easy solution to quick charging is to have standardized swappable battery stations. Stop, swap batteries, continue.


A wee bit more labor intensive...but maybe that's a good thing...need more jawbs.

Probably time to call it a day and focus on space travel and rescue subs.

Musk should stick to the simpler tech that he knows works, like Hyperloop.

If the batteries could be slotted in and out (think like a spring loaded memory card) via something equivalent to a small forklift it would be doable at like ~$30 per battery change like a tank of gas, though I would expect by the time such a system would be in place fast charging capabilities would be improved and be the more sensible choice.

Tripp also claimed the company overreported Model 3 production by up to 44%, according to the Post.
