"An Australian company is planning to trial electric trucks with swappable
batteries allowing almost non-stop travel for heavy vehicles between Sydney and
Developed by Janus Electric, the batteries can be swapped in three minutes,
removing the need for trucks to plug in and charge for up to 12 hours.
The batteries will reportedly average between 400-600km a charge, with drivers
only needing to stop at placed charge-and-change stations along the initial
Brisbane-Sydney trial route.
The stations will be located strategically, to coincide with mandatory driver
fatigue breaks, including at Hemmant in Brisbane, Taree and Coffs Harbour on
the Pacific Highway, and Prestons in Sydney."
