Mitsubishi was recognized as a 50 HIVE innovator by Hanley Wood Magazine at its fourth annual HIVE conference, held December 4-5, 2019 in Austin, Texas. Mitsubishi received the award for their Dendo Drive-House (DDH) system that was first introduced at the Geneva Auto Show in March 2019. The 2019 HIVE 50 Award list recognizes people, products, and processes that lead the way to inspire creativity, improve performance, and explore alternative ways to build.


Mitsubishi’s Dendo Drive-House is a packaged system that allows people to transfer the electric from their vehicles to their homes and vice versa. It includes either a battery electric vehicle (EV) or plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV), a bi-directional charger, solar panels, and a storage battery built for home use. This two-way charger allows people to either charge their electric vehicle or hybrid-electric vehicle from their home, or to charge their home using their electric or hybrid-electric vehicle. DDH also allows homeowners to save on their electric bills by also generating their home appliances and serving as a source of battery power in case of emergencies.


DDH is not available in the U.S. yet, but is currently available to Japan consumers. To stay updated on the latest information from Mitsubishi, follow Quality Mitsubishi’s blog posts and sign up for our notification system!
