Jaguar Land Rover will build a new factory in Nitra, Slovakia, that will start churning out vehicles in 2018.
Electric vehicle infrastructure company Better Place has had its fair share of challenges in trying to get battery-swap technology off the ground.

Picture it: one minute you're standing on your 12th story patio enjoying the fresh air, and the next you're falling from said balcony. Your first thought is that you're probably a goner. Then, as the ground approaches, you realize that the car below you may break your fall. Your next (and presumably last) thought would probably go something like "Oh great, it's a Smart C...(splat)."
