At a Nissan exhibition space in Japan, EV users can pay for parking by discharging energy from their car’s battery pack.
I think this is simple yet brilliant. This highly innovative idea signals the expanding role of EVs to exchanging electricity rather than just consuming it for transportation.
For example, Nissan has also entered agreements with local governments in Japan to use their EVs such as the Leaf to operate as mobile batteries that can supply electricity during natural disasters.
It is said that some EVs have enough capacity to power homes for days. It will be interesting to see more about the potential of this exciting tech.
