It is an odd survey as AFAIK the only EVs with this capability is the Leaf and maybe Soul? Certainly can't do it with Tesla, Zoe or any current CCS EV.

Another issue to address is battery warranty. OVO have worked closely with Nissan on their V2G and they will honor the battery warranty on 30kWh Leafs (and above) but NOT lower capacity ones.

Really like the idea. Could be a little ahead of its time though given the small number of BEVs which support V2G.

I'm quite curious about the revenue model. I guess there's maybe a lot more money in V2G than I thought?

I think this is a great idea, static battery storage for a week or so, would it be V2G? you must have an ideal number of cars always connected to make the finance work. chuck in a Valet and i'm sure its a winner.

Please don't encourage them! It really isn't a viable business model as only BEV with UK V2G support today is Leaf! Most EVs do not support V2G at all.
