YouTube content creator, Sam Evans, recently shared his driving experience with the NEOM EL6, an electric vehicle with battery swap technology. The YouTuber embarked on a 500 km trip to deliver camera equipment to a colleague, testing the NEOM’s capabilities on a long-distance journey.

Evans started the trip with a 98% state of charge, expecting 499 km of range. However, due to the cold battery and heater usage, the range was reduced. Despite the challenging weather conditions, with 3°C outside temperature and a strong headwind, he drove on the autobahn at 180 km/h and even up to 200 km/h at times.

The NEOM EL6 has a 100 kWh battery and offers 180 kW charging. However, the primary focus of this driving experience was to test the battery swap feature.

Fortunately, the NEOM battery swap station was located next to the destination. The station allowed Evans to park the car, which then proceeded to swap the battery automatically. The process took around 1 minute, and the car was lifted up to remove and replace the old battery with a new one.

Evans drove back to his starting point, covering 220 km during the return trip. The battery swap station provided a full charge once again, ensuring a smooth journey.

The YouTuber shared his enthusiasm about the experience, praising the NEOM EL6’s battery swap technology for saving time and providing a cost-effective option for covering long distances. He also mentioned that the NEOM EL6’s interior, infotainment system, and overall quality were impressive, making the driving experience even more enjoyable.

Sam Evans’ driving experience with the NEOM EL6 has generated significant interest among his viewers. The video has inspired discussions about the potential of battery swap technology, the future of electric vehicles, and the importance of efficient long-distance travel solutions.
