Cut sheet rock, drill holes, pull wire, be happy.
It's just part of EV ownership.
Unless you were already wired up for big welders, plasma cutter, large air compressors and therefore already had easy access to multiple big 240v plugs in your driveway/ garage area.
I agree, but I can relate to the OP comment. In my case, I bought a LEAF but have restrictions to rewiring the house. Every electrician said I need a service upgrade. The lowest estimate I received was $4,000 to upgrade the panel and run a 40-amp circuit. That is bad enough, but I am in the middle of a divorce where it is unclear whether or not I will keep the house, so there is no point in spending the money right now. Even if I wanted to spend the money, I cannot spend money outside of normal, everyday expenses while the divorce is underway. To make it even more interesting, I have no room in the garage, so I need a level-2 cable that will fit under the garage door.
My solution was to buy a 40 amp breaker, 35 feet of 8/3 uf wire, and a 14-50 receptacle from the local hardware store. I was able to connect the wire to the breaker inside the box and run it along the inside wall of the garage to a 14-50 receptacle attached to the included EVSE that is coiled up on a rolling stool. When I need to charge, I roll the stool out of the garage and the flat cable fits neatly under the closed garage door.
The whole project cost $130 and a Saturday afternoon.
