GM Expands Vehicle-to-Home Charging Feature to all EV Models

DETROIT — General Motors Co. said today that its entire electric vehicle portfolio would be equipped with vehicle-to-home charging technology by model year 2026.

In other words, you’ll be able to power your home with your EV in case of an emergency outage.

“GM Energy’s growing ecosystem of energy management solutions will help accelerate GM’s vision of an all-electric future by further expanding access to even more benefits that EVs can offer,” said Wade Sheffer, vice president, GM Energy. “By integrating V2H across our entire Ultium-based portfolio, we are making this groundbreaking technology available to more consumers, with benefits that extend well beyond the vehicle itself, and at broader scale than ever before.”

The first vehicles to receive the technology include the previously announced 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV RST, followed by the 2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1, 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV, 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV, 2024 Cadillac LYRIQ and the upcoming Cadillac Escalade IQ, which will be revealed on Aug. 9.

The technology allows consumers to store and transfer energy to help offset electricity needs during peak demand days and mitigate the impact of power outages, the company said.

A new hardware and cloud software platform will allow users to manage the transfer of energy between the vehicle and home, GM said.

Information on additional availability of V2H technology and specific timing of V2H rollout to individual vehicle models will be provided in future updates, GM said.
