Tesla Reveal Powershare V2H on Cybertruck

After maintaining an anti V2x stance for many years Tesla have finally accepted the inevitable! On the new Powershare page on the Tesla web site they say that:

Tesla vehicles* equipped with Powershare technology have onboard electronics that unlock your battery’s ability to provide power whenever you need it, wherever you are. Whether you need to power a construction site, pre-game tailgate, another electric vehicle or even your home during an outage, your Tesla vehicle with Powershare has you covered.

That sounds awfully exciting, but following the asterisk to the small print at the bottom of the page reveals that:

Tesla Powershare is currently available for Cybertruck only.

Without actually mentioning vehicle-to-load or vehicle-to-home Tesla suggest some use cases for the newly unlocked power:

Power your home during an outage for over three days†, with zero noise and emissions and 11.5 kW of continuous capability.

Run your power tools and charge your devices at the same time with five built-in outlets.

Enjoy built-in power for camping, tailgate parties and more.

Charge other electric vehicles when your friends or family need it.

Here is the basic Powershare specification:

The Powershare page also highlights 3 configurations in which a Cybertruck might power your home in the event of an outage: This is the simplest:

It’s not obvious to me that the Cybertruck is going to be a big seller in the UK, so the next obvious question is:

“Which will be the next EV in Tesla’s range to become available with built in V2x capability?”
