The Mazda CX-9 PHEV can earn a spot on the protection all-stars. Honda, BMW, and Ford come together to examine how EVs might connect to the grid. And we get a firsthand look at how the Kia EV9 will help to improve the home and simplify the grid. This and more may be found below at Unseasoned Car Reviews.

One of the reasons the new Kia EV9 is unique is the manner it will enable access to bidirectional charging from the start. Owners of the EV9 now have a Wallbox Quasar 2 option that has been approved by the company for using the electric SUV for both home power backup and reducing grid load. We recently witnessed personally how this will function.

With the use of technology, BMW, Ford, and Honda have teamed up to help the grid with EVs. The automakers created a company called ChargeScape with the goal of organising all the data on hardware and electric utilities for “EV-enabled grid expert services,” so that EV owners can support the grid and profit from doing so.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Security (IIHS) has also named the 2024 Mazda CX-90 plug-in hybrid a Best Protection Choose+. It is one of the few PHEVs to make that list despite the fact that important details about this product, including the EPA range and mpg, haven’t yet been made public.
