Japan: Nissan, MMC to unify EV power

Nissan Motor Co. and Mitsubishi Motors Corp. plan to standardize a device that enables electric vehicle batteries to supply power to households, it was learned Saturday.

The unification of standards by the two automakers that currently split the domestic electric car market will highly likely lead to a unified national standard, observers said.

Electric vehicles have been attracting attention as “movable batteries” since the Great East Japan Earthquake, due to their portability and large power storage capacity.

The device makes it possible for users to connect their electric vehicles to a house’s electricity distribution panel to supply the house with electricity.

Mitsubishi unveiled its device in July, while Nissan introduced its device on Aug. 2. Nissan and Mitsubishi plan to put their respective devices on the market by the end of this fiscal year.
