The 2020 Ford F-150 will be released with an option for its own onboard, built-in gas generator, and companies like Indiana’s Real AC Power, provide chassis-integrated generator systems for internal combustion engine trucks. Electric vehicle makers abandoned this segment for unknown reasons. However, Tesla CEO Elon Musk is teasing about a 240V AC Power outlet on the Tesla Cybertruck, something, which neither Bollinger nor Rivian have announced so far.

At this point, we still have no idea how many watts we can expect. The question is, will the Tesla Cybertruck finally provide EV enthusiasts the way to explore societal collapse? The portable charger that is available with tesla or Ford Mach E Mustang can provide 7.6 kW AC power from an electric oven outlet.

Meanwhile, the Tesla Model S or the X Long Range can charge up to 11.5 kW AC from the hardwired charger of Tesla on a 60 amp circuit at home. However, you will not be able to pull anything back near those speeds to your electric vehicle. Your best option is by using something like a portable kW inverter that you can plug to the poles of the 12V lead-acid battery.

While these inverters are useful, they could not compare to the dedicated generators that can provide power to the entire home, without the fear of using the microwave, and could keep all your appliances running. These generators work with transfer switch linked to the main electrical panel. They are handy since when the grid goes off, you can simply fire the generator up, flip the switch, and have tour whole home powered.

In the video below, you can see the Ford F-350, offering 15 kW of onboard power with it's with 240V outlets. Meanwhile, it is interesting to know that Tesla Cybertruck will offer a 240V AC outlet. However, until we know how many watts it will offer, we could not be too excited. Bollinger earlier said it intends to offer 10 120V outlets, but it also failed to disclose the wattage.
