Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) will bring to market by the end of next month the new MiEV power BOX power feeder which is capable of supplying large amounts of electrical power from an electric vehicle (EV).
Supplied by a Mitsubishi Group affiliate, the MiEV power BOX will be offered as a dealer option for the company’s i-MiEV and MINICAB-MiEV EVs. The MiEV power BOX is an adapter that plugs into the i-MiEV or MINICAB-MiEV’s quick charging connector and is capable of supplying up to 1500 watts of AC electricity from the power stored in the vehicle’s drive battery. It has been designed mainly to power household electrical appliances either when away from home or in an emergency.
When connected to a fully-charged 16.0 kWh battery-equipped model, the MiEV power BOX can supply 1500 watts of power for between five and six hours, equivalent to the amount consumed by an average Japanese household in a single day.
