I remember reading about that replaceable battery concept in Popular Science about 20+ years or so ago (when I used to subscribe).
Teslas would have a hard time re-inventing their batteries to do that. Their batteries are like giant flat cell phone batteries that take up almost the entire floor-board. Makes for a great low center of gravity and handling, but replacing on a daily or 2 basis, not so much.
Those EV batteries are VERY heavy as one unit. You'd need heavy lift equipment to slide one out, and re-insert a fresh one each time. Can you imagine the stock-pile of these engine sized (or multiple ones for larger vehicles) of charged batteries needed on hand on a given day during rush hour in the AM in larger densely populated cities? You'd need a warehouse of them like you see gas stations on each corner. Watch a busy gas station for an hour and count how many cars go in and out. Imagine all those and more needing to exchange batteries? Imagine how many batteries they would need each and every day or week?
Interesting idea in concept, but on a large scale, quite a challenge to pull off efficiently.
Mass transportation on batteries in a large scale is not like charging your little cell phone.
And talk about toxic waste when the batteries lose their charge cycle efficiency. They "could" be recycled, to an extent, but many components/materials will end up in a land-fill, further polluting the environment and ground water tables.
Add millions of dead batteries and in a decade or 2 dead solar panels to the environment and you'll see what REAL pollution does to humans globally. Meanwhile we'll be waiting for the oceans to rise and force over millions of people on the coasts to flee, wondering "where is it"?
