    There is no standard for plug placement on cars. The Nissan LEAF wears its on its nose, as does the @Hyundai Kona Electric. On a Tesla its the rear driver's side fender.
    InsideEVs is asking in a poll on its site, if there was a standard, where should it be?

    I'll go first.

    Obviously, the ideal location is the left side (driver's side) rear fender.

    Why? Because that's where I'm least likely to trip over it.Not everybody's garage is laid out the same, but I generally walk around the round of my vehicle when it's in the garage. If it plugged in at the nose, I'd be walking past the plug lots over time, increasing the chance of a trip and fall.

    I'm with you both for aesthetic and 'what I'm used to' reasons.
