The Aptera Forum
My understanding is that they are considering it, but will probably wait for a standard to be agreed on.
Other owners of my 24kWh BEV (500e) are already doing that emergency measure themselves, wiring an ordinary $200 12V-to-120V pure-sine inverter to run their fridge, TV, computer, etc. off the car.
They wire it to the 12V terminals as you would on a gas car, but in this case, with the key on "acc" it's powered by the HV drive battery through its DC-DC converter.
Aptera currently says the latter is likely going to be 1.5kW, but that's enough to run my fridge, TV & computer all at once, OR turn them off for a while in order to:
- Charge another BEV
- Use my blender
- Run my microwave.
Sounds like you are referring to V2H or vehicle to home. V2G is vehicle to grid. I've also seen V2X being thrown around... which I think stands for vehicle to whatever. Will be interesting to see which acronym eventually sticks.
Yes, my EV battery powering my apartment will be V2H (a subset of V2X), per the subject line's "power a home off the Aptera battery".
My Home & Vehicle are powered by the Grid, until there's a blackout. Then my Vehicle power will go 2 my Home.
https://dcbel.ossiaco.com/ this unit might make V2G and V2H workable, if the Aptera can push electrons both ways from the high voltage batteries. I'm planning on that. It's a main reason I want to buy the vehicle.
