Renault May Consider Applying Rapid Battery Swap Technology for Electric Vehicles

The development of the electric vehicle market depends to a large extent on the state of the charging infrastructure. But there is also a technology for express replacement of the battery pack of an electric vehicle as a whole, which is currently

For many, it will be a revelation that Renault has also tried to launch an express battery swap technology on its electric vehicles. And it was already in the early 10s, in 2012, when Tesla was just beginning its ascent. Then # renault-nissan agreed with the Israeli startup Better Place to support their technology of rapid battery replacement, and the electric car, but which this system was supposed to develop was Renault Fluence ZE.

The first deliveries of #renault fluence ZE electric vehicles with battery replacement technology to #israel began in the second quarter of 2012, and at the height of this project, in mid-September 2012, 21 battery replacement stations were opened in Israel. But then the poor-quality management of the startup did not allow this direction to develop with dignity. Management

Renault CEO Luca de Meo said recently that Renault is considering reintroducing the company’s battery replacement system for its electric vehicles. But by no means to reduce the time spent at the charging and exchange station, but to remove and replace the battery when its service life on the car is exhausted, and it can be used for other work,

The #reno chapter’s saying is very interesting and promising. However, in order to implement this system, it will be necessary to rework the platform on which the Alliance’s electric vehicles are now being created, since such a system is not applicable in its current configuration. Perhaps the ability to quickly replace the battery will form the basis of the next generation EV platform. But this will probably be the second half of the 1920s.

Well, we can see the idea of fast battery swaps hovering in the minds of car company executives and startups. Earlier we told you about
