Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV adds vehicle-to-home power export capability

Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV

The Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV has learned a new trick. The plug-in SUV is now able to supply electrical power to a home using Mitsubishi’s SMART V2H (vehicle-to-home) system. The feature, which can be used with current Outlander PHEVs (with the optional CHAdeMO quick charging socket) is so far available only in Japan.

The V2H system makes it possible to use the Outlander as an emergency power source, using electricity stored in the vehicle’s battery to run appliances in a power outage.

An optional power feeder enables the Outlander PHEV to directly power electrical appliances, for example at an emergency evacuation site, or when engaged in outdoor activities. The 1500 W 100 V power feeder supplies enough power to meet “normal domestic requirements” for a day from a fully charged battery, and up to 10 days with a full gas tank.
