Fiat 500e to Power Homes

Fiat 500e being charged

Nothing like coming home after work to find the power is out in your home. That may not be a problem for owners of a Fiat 500e in the future. Chrysler and NextEnergy are working on technology where the Fiat 500e all-electric vehicle can power your home right through its charging station. Owners of the Fiat 500e could use the car to offset their energy usage for their home or even to supply power to others. A fleet of Fiat 500e models is being used at this time to help power the NextEnergy headquarters, potentially saving the company $15,000 in a year. The video below explains the technology being developed.

Currently, the Fiat 500E is only available in California and Oregon. However, there is always the possibility that 500e sales will expand to other markets in the country. Keep your fingers crossed!
