GM to offer V2H bidirectional charging tech for all upcoming Ultium-based EVs

GM says it will offer vehicle-to-home (V2H) bidirectional charging technology across its portfolio of Ultium-based EVs by model year 2026. The first V2H-equipped vehicles will be the 2024 models of the Chevrolet Silverado EV RST, GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1, Chevrolet Blazer EV, Chevrolet Equinox EV, Cadillac LYRIQ and the upcoming Cadillac Escalade IQ.

Customers will be able to use V2H technology with compatible GM EVs through GM Energy’s available Ultium Home offerings and the GM Energy Cloud software platform. GM’s V2H features will enable EV drivers to store and transfer energy to help offset electricity needs during peak demand periods, and to mitigate the impact of power outages.

“GM Energy’s growing ecosystem of energy management solutions will help accelerate GM’s vision of an all-electric future by further expanding access to even more benefits that EVs can offer,” said Wade Sheffer, VP, GM Energy. “By integrating V2H across our entire Ultium-based portfolio, we are making this groundbreaking technology available to more consumers.”
