Toyota has added an optional extra to its new Prius and Prius PHV hybrid electric vehicles that enables them to provide electricity to power common household appliances.

Especially useful in emergencies such as a power outage, Tech-On reports that it supports a voltage of 100V and a wattage of 1,500W. Electrical outlets are installed in the center console and the luggage area, allowing the driver to plug in any device.

In the Prius PHV (the plug-in hybrid EV), a connector is provided that attaches to its charging port so electricity can be supplied to a device even when the vehicle’s doors and windows are closed. This charging function is available for a price of ¥63,000 ($789) for the Prius and ¥94,500 ($1,183) for the Prius PHV.
