Mitsubishi has raised the bar for electric vehicles, showcasing just how convenient and helpful they can be, with its Outlander PHEV – an electric vehicle that can essentially be used as a giant battery to power a home in a power outage.
Multiple automakers have been dabbling in this kind of capability, such as Toyota, but Mitsubishi is claiming that the Outlander PHEV is the first plug-in electric vehicle in the world to be successful with the idea. Hopefully this will set the standard for all electric cars in the future.
So far, Mitsubishi has only officially declared the Outlander PHEV to power Japanese homes in the event of an emergency, and not for homeowners to rely on their electric vehicles regularly for power.
The program that enables this capability, SMART V2H (Vehicle-to-Home), is available for multiple Mitsubishi models and will likely expand over its catalog over time. Hopefully, Americans will eventually be able to power homes with electric cars too.
