Nissan Shows The Potential Of Bidirectional Power

Nissan has always lead the charge when it comes to bidirectional power standards in EVs. There is a lot of potential in use-cases such as vehicle-to-grid charging. Yet most other manufacturers care little to bring bidirectional charging capabilities to their cars.

Nissan has shown off the true potential of bidirectional charging capabilities with its new RE-LEAF. It’s a disaster response vehicle built to provide emergency power where it’s needed most following natural disasters. With a higher ride height and all-terrain tires, the RE-LEAF is built to navigate potentially treacherous terrain.

It truly shows off the potential of EVs in disaster relief scenarios. It’s just a Nissan Leaf modified for better all-terrain handling. There’s nothing special about this technology used to potentially power life-saving medical or communications equipment. But putting everything together in this package really shows off what can be done with many cars on the road today.

I get it, bidirectional charging technology is boring. But it’s a relatively simple technology with tons of potential. Hopefully the RE-LEAF brings more awareness to this technology and pushes other manufacturers to take a deeper look at it.

What is Vehicle-to-Grid Technology?

While I would argue that EV’s have many more benefits than just their lowered emissions, the need for clean energy is clearly driving the industry forward. But what if I told you that EV’s could do even more to help mitigate climate change. Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) technology could help enable more use of renewable energy. So why haven’t EV manufacturers hopped on board?

Nissan Set to Offer Electric Options of All New Models

Nissan was one of the first traditional auto manufacturers to see the value in EVs. While the Leaf hasn’t been without criticism, it’s helped them learn a lot about manufacturing EVs profitably. Now they’ve found a path towards full electrification while the competition is struggling to get their first EVs on the road. As a first step, Nissan is going to be offering electric options for ALL new models in Japan starting this year.
