Nissan’s Leafpowered coffee
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.
