You know.. I haven't seen this discussed anywhere. But I look at how the Tesla Model-S has the charging port on the rear of the car, much like a gasoline car. And I have to ask myself WHY? Being that this car was supposed to break with all traditions of gasoline cars, why keep this one? It really doesn't make any sense on an electric car. Toyota did it on the Plug-in-Prius just to save a few bucks on manufacturing costs. But I am sure that is not Tesla's reason. The biggest problem I see is when using public charging stations, even the superchargers. Most of the ones I've seen require the driver to back the car into the spot. A lot of people have difficulty backing a car into a spot. Its just something probably 50% of drivers are just not good at doing. I'll admit, I'm not an expert at it either. I think Nissan got it right by putting the charging port right on the nose of the car. This is the most logical place. Most other cars have it on the driver's side in front of the driver door. While that is better, it still makes it hard to reach some charging cords. And I've even had to back my Volt in on occasion in order to get the cable to reach. So what was the reasoning behind this?
