For many consumers, one of the biggest problems holding them back from purchasing an electric vehicle or a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle is having to find a charging station away from the home.
One solution to this issue is vehicle-to-grid (V2G) systems, which is a feature that allows electric cars to work with a power grid to send electricity from the power lines to the car, and back, if desired.
According to a recent statement, Nissan is teaming up with Endesa in Madrid, Spain to develop the first ever “mass market” V2G system, which could absolutely change the future of electric vehicles.
Their plan is for electric car owners to be able to use the V2G system during low-demand charge periods, when costs are lower, and also to be able to store that cheaper charge for another time.
It’s no surprise that Nissan, who leads the automotive industry in electric vehicles, is championing this pursuit. What do you think about the Nissan V2G system? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
