Given how much battery tech is made/comes from Japan
This seems a pretty good thing for the Japanese government to support.
Given the time is money / time off the road costs money thinking behind taxi firms the swappable pack would seem the right way to go. Better chemistry comes along all packs upgrade in a day. Accept vehicles will (for the time being) outlive the pack and swap it out as it fails.
Break down failing battery into its cells and re-cycle good ones back to new batteriers?
Its a start. A small one, but the Japanese have shown they like to start that way. Japanese cars first appeared in Sweden and Finland. They are rather more widely available now.
