Electric vehicles (EVs) serve not only as transportation but also in emergencies. Hitachi and Nissan powered a building's water pump using a Nissan EV, ensuring water access during power outages.


With a 20 kWh battery, Sakura's water pump ran until 10% battery remaining, providing 21,171 liters of water, equivalent to 4,234 toilet flushes in a 20-story building.


During power outages from large-scale disasters, high-rise buildings may lose access to running water. Using EVs to supply electricity can secure essential utilities, improving disaster resilience and property value. 


The "V2X" technology, which transmits power from EVs to buildings, is gaining global attention. The market is expected to grow to about 2.9 trillion yen by 2028. Japan must further develop EV utilization. 



This makes Evs more attractive to own, big help in case of a power outage.

We support Japanese manufacturing.
