Earlier this year at the 89th annual Geneva International Motor Show, Mitsubishi pulled the covers off its new Mitsubishi Engelberg Tourer, a next-generation SUV concept. But that wasn’t the only big innovation to come out of Mitsubishi at the show. The automaker also unveiled its Dendo Drive House system, which could revolutionize the way we power our cars—and our homes.
The Dendo Drive House (DDH) system will initially be offered in Japan and then Europe this year, but we will hopefully get our own version in the States here soon. DDH is a vehicle-to-home (V2H) system that allows drivers to charge their Mitsubishi EV or PHEV vehicle using their home’s solar power during the day. This saves on electricity costs and makes Mitsubishi vehicles even cleaner. Then, at night, using the bi-directional charger, the Mitsubishi EV or PHEV can power the home with its stored energy, saving owners from having to rack up expenses on their electric bill and reducing carbon usage.
According to Mitsubishi, any driver purchasing a battery-electric or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle will be offered the system at all dealerships in Japan and later Europe.
