Better Place is a global EV (electric vehicle) provider based in Palo Alto, California that offers electric cars. But these aren't just any electric cars. The social and environmental business offers switchable lithium-ion batteries, which offer more independence than the typical built-in battery cars. About 95% of a lithium-ion battery can be recycled, which means the entire process is much more sustainable. With Battery Switch stations, the driver gets unlimited range and everything is much easier to maintain. All this at a lower cost than your typical built-in battery backs.
Electric vehicles are one way to transform a dependency on oil. Services are currently offered in Australia, China, Denmark, Israel and the Netherlands.
