I believe that if you want to run anything over 40 amps (??), it's better to hardwire. I will only be pulling 24 amps and am still going to hardwire. I will also install a disconnect right next to the evse for emergency shut off.I have been watching the ElectrifyHome web page. Their home charger seems to have been on back order for a couple of months. Does anyone else know what is going on? Also, they show a 50 amp plug. I believe it can also be hard wired. Since my breaker panel is in my garage right next to where I will park my car the run is very short. I was planning on hard wire but is there any advantage to hard wire over a 50 amp plug? My interest in this topic is picking up as my dealer gave me a date of 7/30 for build complete for my AWD model that I ordered in January. I would like to get the charger in advance, so I can figure out how I want to install it. I would like to stick to the recommended charger but may have to buy something different.
