    I was asked if you could use the battery of Mach-E as a generator for the home if you lose power. Is this true?

  3. You can hook an inverter to the 12 volt battery and put the car in run mode or utility mode and get about 1 kilowat of power. I have done this with my Hyundai Kona electric and powered my house during power outages. I am sure it could be done with a Mach E as well. To my knowledge there is no plug receptacle on the Mach E that you can plug directly into and nothing is shown in the manual.

    Below is a link to a thread showing how EV's (in particualr a Kona ) can be connected for back up power.
