Oh, that is so cool! I posted about that before, about the possibility of running the power to or from the car as needed.

It may have been in the 500e area or in the off-topic area with solar power, where the solar charges the car, and then the car provides for the home if needed.

It's a brilliant strategy to turn a vehicle into a multipurpose tool. Could be a life saver! Keep from freezing in the winter. Keep medical equipment running.

If the power isn't out everywhere, one could drive their 500e to charge it during the day where the power is still on. And then use the power at night for the home.

So excited to hear of this being worked on right now. Thanks for the post!

You know, after they're done testing, that's a used car and a used house, and I'd gladly take them both off their hands. Swoon.

A nice little house with a wheelchair ramp and stairs. A perfect size for me. I'd like the car to match the house though. A lime green 500e would be superb. With the Steam interior. And I'm fine with living in their parking lot. As long as the plumbing is hooked up. And there's no rent.

I have a lot of interior plants and things to go on the front porch. Double swoon.
