It would be really helpful if we learned how to have battery swapping stations. There’s always someone with a good reason to drive a vehicle a near-unlimited number of miles in one day. Battery swapping stations are a relatively simple engineering fix that makes this quite possible for everybody.

Hey all you universities who signed the American College and University Presidents’ Climate Commitment.
