Tesla vehicle powering the furnace

1 or more 4D batteries in parallel would run a furnace blower and fridge for quite some time. A good marine inverter will also act as a constant-volt charger when the shore power comes back on.

The new Hyundai Ioniq 5 will have the ability to extract AC power from it, as will the Cybertruck, and Rivian. I suspect most new EVs going forward will have electrical receptacles for power output. Just seems like a good feature. Heck, the new Ford F-150 hybrid is currently king of the hill for power output (it does it via an integrated generator).
