GM Expanding V2H Bidirectional Charging In Ultium EVs

General Motors has announced plans to expand its vehcle-to-home (V2H) bidirectional charging in its upcoming portfolio of Ultium-based electric vehicles. The first vehicles to receive the technology will include the 2024 model year Chevrolet Silverado EV RST, the 2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1, the 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV, the 2024 Cadillac LYRIQ, and the upcoming Cadillac Escalade IQ. GM says that most of its EV models will be V2H capable by 2026.

The announcement is part of GM’s plan to deliver a growing suite of energy management products through its GM Energy program and Ultium Home offering. V2H allows drivers to transfer energy from their pre-charged electric vehicles back into their home as part of grid savings or during emergency outages. This could potentially save EV owners money by offsetting peak power usage costs.
