Does anyone know where the plug access is? Front, back, right, left, center? I know that my Model 3 is unlikely to arrive before 2018, but I'm planning to install a level 2 charger in my garage this year in order to take advantage of the $1K federal tax credit that expires in 2016. I already have a Prius Plugin with a level 1 charger, so I can legitimately upgrade to a level 2 charger and use it this year in order to qualify for that credit. The only problem is, if I buy a short cable, I need to decide where to mount the charger so it can reach the right spot on the car. Tesla has promised a converter plug so I will be able to share the same SAE J1772 coupler. I also want to install a 30 amp charger to get ready for the Model 3 even though I don't think the Prius will be able to draw that, but it won't hurt it, I use public chargers all the time with no problem. Does anyone have any other charger recommendations or advice?
