Good to see another car manufacturer looking to enable both behind-the-meter and grid-interactive use of bidirectional charging - and apparently it's not a hardware, but only a software change (not retroactive for existing cars though, it seems) #V2G #V2X hyundai.news/eu/articles/pr… Hyundai infographic on V2G ...
It's important technical standards, grid codes, tariffs and programs enable both types of bidirectional charging:

an end to proprietary EV charging networks in the US too?

2022, the breakthrough year for bidirectional EV charging #V2X?

In 🇪🇺 the retroactive rollout of #V2X to Volkswagen electric cars (w/ 77 kWh 🔋) enables car-house-grid integration

In 🇺🇸 the Ford F-150 truck (w/ 98 - 131 kWh 🔋) provides days of backup power for your home

A German newspaper described the Ford F-150 backup power function spot on:

"How to sell the energy transition to a cowboy behind the steering wheel?"

By powering tools & your house in case of power outages. This truck makes you more resilient.
