Re: XC40: Volvo’s first EV is stuck at cargo ports waiting for a software update is delayed for the US right now.Well.....the Audi e-tron, e-tron Sportback, and Volvo XC40 electric all come with a NEMA 14-50 plug, as standard equipment. I just test drove them yesterday, and they all come with the charge kit.
FINAL UPDATE: Quarterly Plug-In EV Sales Scorecard is a list of EVs/PHEVs sold in the US for calendar year 2019. Off the top of my head, I'd estimate that at least 50 to 75% off the models there do NOT come with an L1/L2 EVSE which can be plugged into a NEMA 14-50 outlet. For some, maybe there's an optional adapter (e.g. Teslas) and for some, there's an unofficial and unsupported method (2017 to 2021 Bolts).
And, for some, it varies by model/equipment level. Example: Not all 2018+ Leafs come with a L1/L2 NEMA 5-15/NEMA 14-50 EVSE. And, 2011 to 2017 US market ONLY come with an L1 120 volt NEMA 5-15 EVSE, just like ALL 2017 to 2021 Bolts.
If you want to go by unit sales in the US, for calendar year 2020, I'd say it's likely 75+% do NOT come with an L1/L2 EVSE which can be plugged into a NEMA 14-50 outlet since Tesla dominates followed by Prius Prime and Bolt.
Yep. Or, they can just hardwire a J1772 L2 EVSE.However - if the receptacle is a 14-50 (OP hasn't identified it other than it's "220 volt"), They would be better off buying a plug in EVSE J1772. It fits everything.
