Battery swapping is now underway everyday in Penrose for various customers.

Some comments from Tony, the driver of the Phoenix Metalman semi:
“ The Etruck is awesome to drive, very smooth and quiet. The battery swap process takes only 5 minutes once the truck is in position. Plenty of low down pulling power and is comfortable at 90km on the motorway. The driving technique varies to the traditional combustion models; gentle on the throttle seems to work better along with looking well ahead to anticipate off throttle & braking to activate the regeneration system back into the battery thus more life/kilometers covered ”
