The shirt may relate to a Plug-In-Prius, not the Volt.

My AV EVSE is mounted on the wall a few feet from my garage door so that I can easily charge the car on my driveway when I don't choose to park in the garage for some reason. But yesterday I moved the cord support bracket along the wall right by where the nose of my car will be. Removing only 2-3 coils off the bracket will easily make the plug reach the front center of the car. And related to the OP's comment, it only took me ~5-10 seconds to recoil it on the wall. I can live with that. :lol:
