Inspired by: The rapid advancement of electric vehicle's technologies led by Tesla Motors stratospheric success in such a short period of time encouraged me to submit my project to this important contest, as I firmly believe that my concepts have the merit to contribute on the struggle to decarbonize transportation. In fact, they can remove the three main obstacles blocking EVs. widespread adoption: high upfront costs, range anxiety and long time to recharge. For now, commercial vehicles could use, as they are, the novel equipment installed to perform quick-swapping of battery modules. In the future other segments of vehicles, compatible to the patented instant-swapping system will be hopefully built.
