I just watched the TED talk, Shai Agassi: A bold plan for mass adoption of electric cars, and I became very excited with his proposal.
He says car 2.0 needs to be about infrastructure coherence and separating the battery from the car. So what does he need:
– Charging stations where you normally park your cars. He states that Scandinavia already have this many places, and we do.
– Battery swapping stations. This we do not have, so let’s start building.
Earlier i wrote about BYD and Tesla, now he tells that the Renault-Nissan alliance is committed to make his dream a reality. That is great news and it seems like most auto manufacturers are really starting to get around!
He also introduve the term eMile (should have been eKM I think), currently priced at 8 cents. Remarkable! Does anyone care to do the math and make comparable tables with gasoline?
