Not impossible, but the smart money's against them.

If they manage 25% of that goal, they'll still make a hell of an impact.

Harley-Davidson has gone into partnership with KYMCO for the Livewire off-shoot brand and they're planning interchangeable batteries as well.

Interchangeable batteries are important for couriers eg uber eats. So there is a real market for this

A colleague of mine regularly goes on holiday to Taiwan, to visit friends and because he has become quite fond of the island after having worked there as an ex-pat for maybe 5 years. And he explained to me about this battery swapping system in Taiwan.

In a city environment and for small moped-type e-scooters it seems a very practical and useful system.

According to him it really works well. But his thoughts: it works well in Taiwan, but it would not work in the Netherlands (he is from the Netherlands) and maybe nowhere in Europe because there are always these no good hooligan guys that just like to damage or destroy whatever there is that does not belong to them.
