Cool news from Israel. Hopefully it's not just PR and will actually happen.

The most innovative part is this:
Project Better Place, Agassi's organization, will try to build 500,000 electric service stations in the country, according to the organization. At these stations, attendants will swap out depleted batteries and put in fully charged ones. This saves the several hours typically required to charge a lithium-ion battery pack made for cars.
