Nis­san’s Leaf­pow­ered cof­fee

Autocar - - INSIGHT -

Nis­san demon­strated its ve­hi­cle-to­home charg­ing con­cept, where en­ergy can be taken from a Leaf’s bat­tery and fed back into your home, by us­ing a new Leaf to power a mac­chi­ato ma­chine (and, bizarrely, a printer that could ren­der your photo onto the frothy top). It doubt­less proved useful when the Las Ve­gas Con­ven­tion Cen­tre suf­fered an ex­tended power cut on the sec­ond day of CES.

WHEN IS IT DUE?

The ve­hi­cle-to-home sys­tem is avail­able now and can pro­vide en­ergy back to the grid, po­ten­tially cut­ting your bills. De­liv­er­ies of the sys­tem will be by 2019.
