Mitsubishi has started a limited sale of the vehicle-to-home based system Dendo Drive House (DDH) in Japan. It allows the Outlander Plug-in Hybrid to be integrated into the domestic power supply to reduce power costs and maximize the benefits of bi-directional vehicle charging, for example as a backup generator.
The DDH consists of the Mitsubishi Outlander plug-in hybrid, a bidirectional charging station as well as solar modules and a stationary battery. It is designed so that the customer can either recharge their electric vehicle at home with solar power or feed the electricity stored in the vehicle battery into the domestic grid. DDH is offered through the Mitsubishi dealer network as a complete service package, from sales to installation, system maintenance and individual components.
The concept was first presented and announced at the Geneva Motor Show in March 2019. It is planned to offer the system also in overseas markets.
