Why has nobody ever thought of a removable electric car battery? You know how with a camping gas cylinder, you take it to be refilled, but they don't refill it while you wait, you simply get a full one in exchange? Why not do the same with the car batteries? A "petrol station" could have a big rack of batteries charging at whatever rate, and you simply pay, take a full one, and slot in your empty one.
Please do not look into laser with remaining eye.

very angry and been widely regarded as a bad move.
tesla tried that it wasnt very popular......
In most places, people go on holiday for 500 miles. One or two half hour stops isn't too bad, but I'd certainly prefer just swapping the battery and carrying on. Maybe I'm impatient. But consider how much land is needed for cars to sit for 30 minutes.
Why is the front of an aeroplane called a cockpit?
If you have female pilots do you call it a pussypit?

Back in the day I was about 6' 2" and 200 pounds. Watching me get in and
out must have been entertaining, particularly with the top up. The funny
thing was a friend had a 3000 I drove a couple of times and I found the
Sprite more comfortable. I don't know about the new ones but Corvettes
were the same. I'd looked at a '65 Stingray and I realized it wasn't
going to work unless I wanted to drive around with my chin on my knees.
When the Fiero came out I stopped at the dealer's to take a look. A
salesman who had sold my a Firebird a couple of years before yelled
across the showroom 'They don't make those in your size.' Another time I
went in to buy a Porsche 914 and left with an Audi. Should have stayed
with the Porsche; the Audi had ergonomically designed seats that went
with somebody else's ergo. It's the only car that I really came to
dislike. Well, there was the Fiat Spyder. It was comfortable enough but
it should have come with a small Italian mechanic in the trunk.

Mabee it's just your Limey English - but it takes the same space to
park "A" car for 30 minutes as it does for 30 seconds - it's when they
all start piling up waiting for that same spot because it is occupied
for a longer time that the problems start - particularly when one of
those cars is an english car that won't start. Can you imagine an
electric car with Lucas electrical parts????
All goes back to the old question of why Britts drink their beer warm
- Lucas refrigerstors. Or the correction to that falacy - Britts drink
their beer at room temperature - and anyone who's spent any time in
the Isles knows THAT is not warm!!. Why? Lucas central heat???
You'd think with their reputation, vacuum cleaners would be a perfect
product for Lucas to build - but allas, that would be the only product
they built that DIDN'T suck - - -
But it occupies it for a sixtieth of the time. So the gas station needs 60 times more space. [giggle]
We don't make cars anymore.
And the old question of how an American car can use three times the gas in an engine three times the size and have the same power output, and still not go round corners.

Beer has a horrid flavour anyway and fuck all alcohol in it. I prefer vodka mixes.
If the world didn't suck we'd all fall off.
More than 10,000 people in England and Wales required professional treatment for injuries caused by home telephones in 2002.
Sounds a bit like my '63 Valiant. Lowered on all 4 corners with
oversized shocks - cornered like it was on rails and with 206 rwhp had
a top speed past the top of the speedo.. 60 in 1st, 90 in 2ndand
burried the speedo in 3rd. It wasn't particularly quick - but it WAS
