The Concept

In search for a long-term, sustainable energy solution for passenger and goods transport, the electric car is the modern alternative made for the future. The cars can be built with high efficiency, but the time for charging is holding back the development.

Extensive work with hybrid cars is ongoing everywhere. A hybrid, however, creates no overall solution because the petrol engine must be used for longer trips, alternative the driving is made with long stops along the way to recharge. It also requires double drive systems that cost more and require more energy in production.

Powerswap AB has created a revolutionary system for fully automatic exchange of batteries. The unit can be placed directly on the ground and replace the battery from the side. The whole equipment can be installed on existing fuel stations or parking lots, allowing an infrastructure to be established at limited cost and effort.

With PowerSwap the charging conditions for EVs radically change. When electric cars can be "refuelled" in a similar way as for the combustion engine vehicles, the biggest obstacles for a largescale expansion is eliminated.
