The U.S. government approved a patent application from Tesla to develop mobile stations for electric vehicles brand. They are installed on tracks between major cities and will allow you to change the battery in the car in just 15 minutes.
The development of technology is fast replacing dead batteries the company is engaged in the last three years. Originally it was planned to create an automated system that will be able to change the battery in a fully automatic mode for fifteen minutes. However, this idea had to be abandoned. According to new idea, time to replace the need for more, and without control of staff do not succeed. But to equip a mobile service station can be even in the trailers. The work involves special lifts, one service station, one person will cope.
First and foremost, the technology is focused on electric cars Model S and Model X, and the stations themselves will be useful in case if the battery pack for some reason is out of order or in need of repair. To recharge the batteries will also fit stations Supercharger, which procedure is full recovery of battery capacity takes an hour. Drivers Model 3, in which the CRA did not lend themselves to quick replacement, can only use the charging stations Supercharger.
