The Future Of Driving Arrives in The Netherlands
Schiphol airport is home to the first Battery Switch Station (BSS) in Western Europe outside Denmark. The BSS allows electric cars powered by a switchable battery to exchange a depleted battery for a fully charged one in less than five minutes, thereby for the first time enabling non-stop electric driving.
The BSS is the focal point for an innovative electric taxi project. This project demonstrates the feasibility of non-stop electric driving by running 10 switchable battery Renault Fluence Z.E. electric taxis on the Schiphol-Amsterdam corridor. The taxis drive as much as up to 600 km per day, proving that electric taxi driving works successfully.
