For the moment, when you use GRASS algorithms, you can only export to shapefiles.
Other Processing algorithms (QGIS ones for example) support the following formats:

  • SHP
  • DXF
  • ODS
  • GXT
  • XLSX
  • GML
  • GPKG
  • TAB
  • CSV
  • ITF
  • XML
  • DGN
  • BNA
  • KML
  • GPX
  • SQLite
  • ITF
  • 000

GRASS algorithms should support those formats too.
The file selector should be the same than for the other Processing algorithms (where you can select the file format).

For some GRASS GIS 7 commands (e.g. v.overlay) a 'Modify input layer' option may be helpful.
