All North American EVs use the same charger port (SAE J1772) except for Tesla. All Teslas come standard with an adapter to connect to SAE J1772 chargers.
All Teslas include a Level 1 Mobile Connector that is capable of Level 2 charging with the use of an adapter for a NEMA 14-50 outlet. This option can be used to plug in anywhere with a NEMA 14-50 outlet.
The more permanent option is to use a hardwired system, a Tesla Wall Connector. This option charges slightly faster and is more visually appealing.

With a plug-in electric vehicle charging station, a certified electrician installs a 240 volt outlet near the electric vehicle. The charger plugs directly into the outlet and is more portable.
With a hardwired system, a certified electrician installs a dedicated 60-80 AMP line from the main breaker to the preferred EV charging location. The EV charger is mounted on the wall and connected to the main line in the wall.
First, survey other people in your apartment building who already have electric vehicles (EVs). They may be interested in sharing a level 2 charger in the garage. Additionally, garnering signatures from your neighbors is a good way to show your landlord that you and your fellow residents have interest in a charging station.
