Tesla to Open First Battery Swap Station This Week
In the summer of 2013, Tesla Motors (NASDAQ: TSLA ) showed off a 90-second battery swap system. The technology will enable owners to quickly exchange their battery for a fully charged one instead of waiting for their electric vehicle to power up at a Supercharger location. A year and a half later, Tesla has finally debuted its first battery swap station.

Next week, Tesla will begin a pilot battery swapping program at a facility across the street from a Supercharger station at Harris Ranch, California. During the pilot program, Tesla will initially host only invited Model S owners.
"This pilot program is intended to test technology and assess demand," according to Tesla's blog post yesterday announcing the program.
