"You could not imagine something like this in a country like Austrailia, Russia, or the US."
Why does the head of the one large automaker who's actually working with BP make this claim? Because he says the swap stations are too expensive. Couple expensive swap stations with a small country such as Israel which can be entirely covered with a single recharge and it's pretty obvious BP isn't even necessary in Israel. I'd love to see some statistics as to how often the swap feature is even used in Israel when this actually goes into operation. As I've been saying for a long time, BP and swapping is completely unnecessary and likely to fail.
