The sheer size, varying technology factors and economics of EV batteries (inventory, anyone?) make swapping them like camera batteries impractical and uneconomical, as Tesla discovered when it started down this path. As we've seen, the charging rates increase seemingly with each passing quarter... it won't be another 2 years before an EV "fillup" won't take longer than an ICE fill-up. With range 'comfortably' exceeding 200mi and pushing 400mi (Telsa and soon others), charging rate is the last hurdle to mass EV adoption. Well, other than charging infrastructure, but that's evolving quickly, too!
