Ample Introduces an Automatic Battery Switch Station to Promote EV Adoption

In a collaboration with Automakers and fleet operators, Ample has pledged to deliver at least 1 Billion EVs.

Although most of the vehicles on the road today use petroleum products, that's probably going to change in the coming years – as more and more car manufacturers are focusing on shifting to electric platforms. The startup company, Startup Ample has come out of R&D stealth mode to help move things along with the introduction of an automated battery replacement solution for electric vehicles, using modular battery packs that can be installed in existing EVs. The electric car can be removed from its old battery modules and replaced with a completely assembled unit in less than 10 minutes.

Following several demo projects, the battery swapping company, Better Place had launched commercial EVs in 2012. However, the company was unable to make the idea pay off, and it halted the production after a year of operation. Ample now offers, a solution that has two main features, one of which is a modular battery design that will allow existing vehicles to use another component.

Once the car is loaded with "Lego-like modules," the driver can enter the station’s platform while the EV is connected to the charger, the automatic process removes the used modules and replaces them with new ones in less than 10 minutes. Taken out modules are then recharged, prepared for the next vehicle to come in. There is no clear idea on how much will these features cost to the drivers, however another point of the project's objectives is to bring that "refueling" costs down as that of fuel. Likewise, the organization has optimized its arrangement with the goal of assembling the swapping station nearby. Now the company is insisting other car manufacturer and fleet operators to join this project and help the company to produce more EVs.
