That's not wrong about installing a DCFC in their home.... little besides price is stopping anyone from installing a DCFC at home...I am cutting them some slack right now. What is inexcusable though is misinformation. Don't tell a customer they can install a DCFC in their home. Don't tell them you can use a SuperCharger. Better to say "I don't know" and I will have someone get back to you. Misinformation is the WORST possible PR for Ford and its dealer network.
You just have to manage expectations. Don't expect it to come in under $40k by the time you get your electrical system upgrade with dedicated transformer, etc, and probably closer to $100k... If lucky with minimal installation needs, you might be able to go cheap with a low-end L3 50kW (as opposed to 150-350kW) for sub $20k installed. The low end DCFC 50kW rate could still charge at over double the top rate of a L2 50A 240V charger).
