Supports V2G

The Vehicle to Grid System (V2G) is a global technology initiative that turns electric vehicles into flexible, free-moving power sources. Within the SAM vehicle, V2G consists of two-way charging unit and a power management system that can receive charge from off-grid renewable energy sources such as solar panels and wind turbines.

With this equipment, SAM owners can charge with off-peak energy and renewable sources at cheaper rates. This energy stored in the vehicle's battery can be consumed later for household needs during higher rate periods (and even resell it with a profit to public grid!). SAM owners can charge the vehicle's battery with this cheaper, renewable electricity and use it for vehicle propulsion, to power devices at home and business or it can be released back to the public grid.

All SAM vehicles will soon offer V2G technology, initially as a factory option and ultimately as standard equipment.
