The battery portion on the coach would become a leased item where you just pay a monthly fee for it's use. I will be pushing up daisies by the time something like this comers along...but it's a great possibility. Electric forklifts have had similar programs for years...you buy the equipment, lease multiple batteries and swap them out between shifts...no down time or battery replacement costs.
There was a company trying to do that with cars in Israel. It didn't work out for them (not because of the tech, mostly due to mismanagement).
