New for the latest Outlander PHEV is bi-directional charging, which allows the car (with specific infrastructure in-house) to send energy from the battery back to the grid (vehicle-to-grid), or to power a property that is not connected to the power grid. network (vehicle home).
Aspire models and above offer vehicle-to-charge technology, featuring two 1.5 kW (1500 W), 240 volts, three-prong in-car home outlets that can be used to power camping equipment or other small electrical appliances from the car battery pack.
