Better Place has taken the world by storm, with deals over the past few years being made in Denmark, Tokyo, Canada, and more. The Israeli company has also made deals with car makers like Renault to produce cars that have specific battery boxes that can be removed and replaced by Better Place's automated battery swapping bays.
The new center in Israel is built inside a refurbished oil tank, to drive the point home, and boasts partnerships with 92 corporate fleet owners and a leading gas station chain (Dor Alon) in Israel.
The center also boasts a 1 mile test drive track and it all opens to the public on February 14th.
