Any Chance for Generic Quick-switch Batteries??

The global transition to electric cars has been held up in the elevation by the lack of generic quick switch that works. All automakers would have sold far more electric vehicles had they been able to agree on one, two or three quick-switch standards.

As Mercedes considers the new Smart EQ Fortwo, hopefully, it study the idea.

Can you mix old batteries and new batteries like that? It seems like a lot of engineering for a problem that doesn't need solving. The battery in the smart weighs over 400lb. A 20 lbs pack would give you less than 3 miles of range. Why not just equip the cars with DC quick charge so you can fully charge the car in 20 minutes? That's what all the other car companies are doing.
