Overseas, Better Place is partnering with Renault to expand its network of charging stations and battery swapping locations. Here in the USA, Better Place is partnering with Coda Automotive.
Better Place has a $20 million California Energy Commission grant for clean transportation to manage taxis serving the San Francisco and San Jose airports. The goal is to deploy 2 battery swap stations and six electric taxis with swappable battery packs.
Coda will be supplying those 6 electric vehicles.
