Nissan launches ‘leaf-to-home’ system in Japan.
The system allows owners to use the battery in their Leaf electric vehicle as a backup power supply to their home in an emergency, or as a way to buy and store power at off-peak rates, to feed back into their home at peak times.
The EV Power Supply station is also capable of fully charging the Leaf in only four hours - half the time of an ordinary charger. The cars battery can store up to 24kWh of electricity, which Nissan claims will power the average Japanese home for two full days.
The Leaf-To-Home system goes on sale in Japan in mid-June for ¥333,000 (around US$4240).
