I'm surprised that my post got zero responses. Mitsubishi has a web page describing their vision of autos providing electrical backup of homes:
Mike, I can echo your recent experience, as we were part of that ice storm you spoke of - we also ran an extension cord into the house to power a large fridge, a small freezer and internet router/ modem for ~ 6 hours. I think the battery bar chart dropped off 1 segment. Although I think it would be a bit extreme for my requirements to put in a true V2H setup, I was thinking of drilling through our cement garage wall to put in a grommet that would allow both a 120V extension cord AND a Level 2 cable, to connect to a 240V Dryer splitter unit (https://www.amazon.ca/Parkworld-886...ix=240v+dryer+splitter+for+ev,aps,1947&sr=8-2I live in Canada and I own a 2023 Outlander PHEV, SEL trim which comes with a 1500W power outlet at the trunk of the vehicle. We recently got an ice storm, therefore a power outage, not in my home but in one of my friends. I decided to give it a try and plug his fridge and freezer (2 separate units) to the 1500W power outlet, and it really worked. The battery does not deplete very quickly, and if you need to use it for 2+ days you need to put the engine in charge mode and let it run while using the battery to power your units. So it seems that the V2H is a very expensive option which has not been introduced in north America yet because it is still too expensive and a regular power generator would cost a lot less. I am planning to ask the auto dealer about it but the first time I bought the car, I asked and they were not even aware of it. I know that some Tesla models come with a V2H system included with the vehicle. So for me, using just the 1500W power outlet, for powering just the home appliances in case of emergency is more than enough.
