Re: Electric Vehicle Charging Station

Given the amount of power it takes to charge an electric vehicle it is unlikely you are ever going to downgrade to 120v circuit. If anything I'd go with a larger gauge wire to be able to support faster recharge rates.

Since the electrician has to pull cable if you think you will need more circuits in the garage, perhaps two charging stations, workshop, etc now is the time to do so. If that is the case I'd install large gauge wire and install a sub panel in the garage. That way you have a lot of flexibility going forward.
