    If a homebuilder is trying to also highlight green building techniques, that sort of makes sense.

    Well also if the home come pre-wired to handle the extra load of charging an EV, that's a plus.

    Yeah but rarely is there a couple 70 circuits in the garage and rearely do they oversize the panel enough to accomodate 2-3 more 70A circuits. Easy to do for a marketing scheme ..... good play on their part. First homes ever to offer it as standard equipment maybe ....:rolleyes:

    Hmm, it says test rides, not test drives. Could this be an owner car, someone associated with the builder?
