What is Vehicle to Load (V2L)?

“Vehicle-To-Load” (V2L) allows you to use the stored energy from electric vehicles high-voltage to recharge an e-bike, or power electrical camping equipment, or some domestic appliances, and this is even possible when the vehicle is turned off. A V2L External Adaptor is required to use this function.

 

V2L technology was first introduced with Hyundai’s new E-GMP dedicated electric vehicle platform. The E-GMP now supports a bi-directional vehicle charge port, which with the aid of Hyundai’s genuine V2L External Adaptor; your electric vehicle can now be used as an external power source to power several electrical devices / equipment or appliances.

The V2L system can supply AC power (230V / 50 Hz) up to a maximum of 3.6kW (or 15 Amps) power consumption. The vehicle is equipped with a system failsafe to prevent V2L overloading.  

When using this V2L, it is important to apply the same caution as you would when using electrical appliances / electrical equipment within your home or place of work.

*IMPORTANT* - Vehicle-To-Load (V2L) should NEVER be connected to the electricity grid (domestic residence or work).  V2L works in a similar way to a portable generator or a large inverter, NOT as battery storage for your home or place of work.
