Our approach to Verification of V2H (Vehicle to Home)


Plug-in Hybrids, which can be recharged by an external power source, will soon be able to use a new V2H (Vehicle to Home) function in which energy stored in the vehicle is returned to the home.

In addition, this capability allows the engine to be used for electricity generation, e.g. during emergencies such as natural disasters even when the battery runs low. *As part of the "Toyota City Low-carbon Society Verification Project", we plan to start providing this system to homes starting from the beginning of 2013.
