I'll preface this by saying, if you dont have experience touching brakes, or doing mechanic work avoud my post completely.Seems unlikely to hurt anything by giving it a try.
My biggest concern would be maintaining the brake fluid level so that an electronic bleed wouldn't be needed. Pretty sure there's no workaround for having a scan tool when it comes to that.
In my past experience unless you are disconnecting the brake lines bleeding shouldnt be necessary. Removing the caliper from the hub, you are not dusturbing the brake fluid lines and you have no risk of adding air to the closed system. If there is air in the lines, it was already there before you touched the brakes. As soon as you touch the Master brake cylinder or the brake lines, thats a different story. Again this being an ev it might be different, but to be on the safe side you can always open the brake fluid reservoir, pump the brakes a few times to make sure. Also with the reservoir closed, if you pump the brakes and they get stiff after 2-3 pumps, your brakes are working fjne. If it still feels mushy after 2-3 pumps then you have to bleed them. Being an EV you have the advantage of 1pd mode and can use that to bring the car to get it bled via the scan tool.
