I don't know, but that article's title sounds a little too much like a dare. I've read and read, and all things EV charging is like anything else. You pick up only around 20% when you read something new (even less when you hear it). But it accumulates by various amount each additional time after that until voila, some rough understanding. Getting the basics down is great, however also waiting the commonality and consolidation shakeout that's inevitable in the coming decade.

The Tucson PHEV onboard charger has a 7.2 kW capacity for charging the 13.8 kWh battery. You would need a 40 amp, 240 volt circuit to run a Level 2 EVSE at 7.2 kW.
That is completely correct. You only would go larger if you want a charger larger than that for future growth. Even the Toyota Rav 4 takes a slower charging rate. You can always go with larger wiring conductors to facilitate a larger unit in the future..especially if your thinking full EV
