Some news articles refer to the Eclipse Cross PHEV's traction battery capable of being used as a source of electricity in an emergency. It can supply power to a general household.

Is the 240V power plug in the boot a standard feature❓

Mmmmmmmm, We are now deprived of new Mitsubishi products because I believe by dictats from Renault and Nissan. The sooner Mitsubishi can ditch those two the sooner the better, and be their own boss once again. The better it will be for Mitsubishi, and its customer base.

Not much info around as yet on this model. Try checking the manuals for the Outlander PHEV to see what features it offers. May have the same option there that you can read in the manuals. There are a number of Outlander PHEV manuals here:


Download the 2020 Euro manual:


It has a detailed explanation of the 240 volt AC outlet starting at page 8-77 though the Outlander also has a 240 v outlet at the rear of the centre console. The EC PHEV should be similar if not identical though they show the outlet as a standard Euro power plug which will differ here in Australia and the USA. Listed in that manual as only 1500 watts so not a great deal of use overall. Good for powering household appliances that have a low power draw.

It is not recommended for connection to a household for power draw. There are many caveats listed in the manual regarding its use. I see its usefulness as limited. Once you deplete the battery power the engine starts automatically and uses fuel to provide power to the appliance(s) connected.

No, not even sure if it is an option for Straya

I test drove the PHEV about 2 weeks ago and am awaiting delivery of the same in November. I did confirm, at-least here in NZ, we are not being given the 1500W power socket version.

Waiting on delivery of a PHEV. I contacted Mitsi head office in NZ and they too confirmed NO power socket on NZ models. They also replied that a socket could not be retro fitted. I had wondered if these vehicles come out of the factory all with the same loom meaning that there could potentially be a connector available behind the panels/trim. Perhaps I'm being a bit simplistic!!

Thanks for the update @Phever
Was hoping the September shipment would have the power adaptor. Looks like you have got a confirmation from Mitsi NZ that it does not 😢

Time to buy an inverter❗ I have been looking at options providing 100— 500 W ranging between $35— $80

I am also awaiting my PHEV — last I heard, delivery date was 28 Sep

Stay safe hopefully you are not in Auckland where we seem to be in lockdown for another 10 days

If you don't mind sharing, what date did you book your vehicles on?
I booked on 13th August and got a delivery date of 5th November, which kind of doesn't add up.
I'm in Wellington, and before I actually booked, I called up a number of dealers in Auckland and here in Welly as well, all quoting delivery dates till max first week of October.
But when I did book however, I was quoted a delivery date of November.

Booked ours 30 June and it arrived in NZ last week. Outside of AKL so with level 2 as from Wednesday should get it in a few days once the dealership has prepared and registered it.
The inverter sounds a good idea. Still reckon the connector for the outlet will be on the loom as I can't imagine Mitisi would have a different loom for the tiny NZ market.
Have you seen this, really interesting at the factory
.
Cheers

Toyota offers delivery in level 3 as well, so I believe Mitzi should have offered deliveries in Level 3 too..
And yeah, I've seen that video too..there are hardly any videos that I haven't watched yet now..even the one's in Japanese, Polish and German :D

Thank you for sharing the update @Phever , did Mitsubishi NZ office say why it’s not on the NZ model? Is it something to do with legislation or cost issue? Strange that they will make NZ models without it so there must be a reason for it. Thanks

Hi Pumanz. This is the reply from Mitsi NZ - no real reason given:
The information you have found is not from Mitsubishi Motors NZ (MMNZ) and has been incorrectly released from Mitsubishi Motors Corporation (MMC) in Japan, the reference to Australia and NZ having this 220/240V 1500W socket feature is an error. We are in the process of getting this misinformation retracted from the MMC website.

Any other reviews from around the world you may find online are out of our control. We recommend to only use the MMNZ website as a source for information about the Mitsubishi vehicles which are released in New Zealand.

Unfortunately, it is also not possible to have this socket feature retro fitted.

We do apologise for the misinformation you found on the MMC website and we hope to see this rectified soon so as to not confuse other customers.

Hi @Phever
Thanks for the update.

Please send this 👇 link to whoever replied to you from Mitsi. This is DT 9 September❗
This is already happening... Mitsi is not only supplying but also promoting this feature in AU 🤔
Clearly lot of confusion... Let's not call it POWER PLUG. Let's call it V2L
Window Rectangle Font Building Magenta


Also V2L technology is not new for Mitsubishi. The highlighted parts are what Mitsubishi are saying...

We all shall still buy the car; with or without V2L; Mitsi should really show leadership and upgrade existing cars with a retrofit kit. Is someone from Mitsubishi reading this❓ I do hope so 😃

Have a great weekend all & stay safe❗

Not quite the same as having a 240v socket.

This concept demonstration is to demonstrate what the system could do. The idea was realised after the Japanese Tsunami disaster, where MMC supplied iMiEV's to destroyed neigbourhoods so they could get a basic power supply.

On the MMC global website have been many conceptual ideas, including this one for a few years now, with one memorable one where the Family take their concept vehicle to stay in a isolated off grid cabin, plug in the car, and the vehicle battery supplies ALL of their power, with solar panels charging the car during the day.

There are many technology concerns to implementing this system into our power grid, with the main one being when a power cut occurs, and someone plugs their EV to the grid to give them power at their house, and the line workers get electrocuted as the power back feeds to the damaged line.

A simple 240v powerpiont via a voltage convertor is not a new idea. Pajero sport Exceed models and some Outlanders have had one for a few years, But they are only convertors with a reasonably low output. This concept Is a full power supply.

You could easily buy a more powerful convertor, similar to what they use in Caravans, but the limiting factor would be the 12v battery in the Plug in Hybrid Outlander and ECross, which has a low CCA capacity, so would need substantially upgrading
