I knew that someone was going to make the comment about four fat people or the like. Hell, with seating up to six people, they don't even all have to that fat, they can all weigh in at 200 pounds each, LOL.

But I did say "on a gas motor vehicle"...

Not that it matters really, Yes, an automated line will do work rather quickly. But the general public don't see these things. They don't watch a car from GM, Ford, or Dodge, from start to finish in 10 hours. They don't see a Forklift battery swapped out in five or so minutes (Remember, this is done in just over 90 seconds). What they see is a video of a person getting out of their car, and doing what they do on a regular basis, get gas from the pump, and fill up the tank. The process takes over three minutes, and often, people are used to five to seven minutes. Then they see, in front of their faces, not one, but two cars get their battery packs swapped out in less than the time that it takes the other person to fill their gas tank.

And they are told that many places where they can charge their cars now, for those with Tesla's, will be able to avail themselves to the same thing, for a fee. One might think that the fee will probably be around the cost of a tank of gas.

Some people just don't get how fast automated stuff can work, so yes, they are OMG about the whole thing. Others are a bit jaded, and so they don't really think much of it.

I guess the best part, if the battery swap stations are placed in enough places, one could do the Gumball in about the same amount of time, or less, than the Lamborghini that you mentioned a couple of pages back.
