GM Expanding Access to V2H Bidirectional Charging

V2H technology allows consumers to transfer energy from their vehicles to a properly equipped home when desired.

General Motors announced that it will expand vehicle-to-home (V2H) bidirectional charging technology across its retail portfolio of Ultium-based electric vehicles by model-year 2026.

The first vehicles to receive the technology include the previously announced 2024 Chevrolet Silverado EV RST, followed by the 2024 GMC Sierra EV Denali Edition 1; 2024 Chevrolet Blazer EV; 2024 Chevrolet Equinox EV; 2024 Cadillac LYRIQ; and the upcoming Cadillac ESCALADE IQ, which will be revealed on Aug. 9.

V2H technology allows consumers to transfer energy from their vehicles to a properly equipped home when desired.

“GM Energy’s growing ecosystem of energy management solutions will help accelerate GM’s vision of an all-electric future by further expanding access to even more benefits that EVs can offer,” said Wade Sheffer, vice president, GM Energy. “By integrating V2H across our entire Ultium-based portfolio, we are making this groundbreaking technology available to more consumers, with benefits that extend well-beyond the vehicle itself, and at broader scale than ever before.”

Customers will be able to leverage V2H technology on compatible GM EVs through GM Energy’s available Ultium Home offerings, and the GM Energy Cloud, a software platform that will allow users to manage the transfer of energy between applicable and connected GM Energy assets and the home.

“This announcement underscores GM’s holistic approach to energy management, leveraging the power of Ultium to introduce new technologies and innovative features for residential customers,” the automaker said in a news release. “Developing solutions for Ultium Home that pair with GM’s growing portfolio of EVs provides customers with more choices and greater value across vehicle categories and price points than ever before.”

Information on additional availability of V2H technology and specific timing of V2H rollout to individual vehicle models will be provided in future updates, GM noted.
