120 volt power port on hybrids

By Al L.

Anytime there is a natural disaster such as a hurricane, earthquake, etc people's homes lose electrical service. If Ford added a 120 volt A/C power port on their hybrids, then Ford owners could use their Fusion hybrid or C-Max hybrid to provide emergency electrical power for their homes. In my case I would use it to power our refrigerator and basement sump pump. This would not be difficult to do (GM hybrid pickups provided this) and my Ford Hybrid would then become a superb backup emergency generator.

There is one in the C-Max Energi but it has a limited wattage output. The battery capacity of a normal hybrid wouldn't help you much, but the Energi might have enough kwh to do something useful.
