Charging cable not included ?

Just got my i8 and I canít find the charging cable? Where is it?

Also was considering getting this cable

Any comments - I have 14-30p that I use for my Tesla already and I figure I can switch to this cable and use for both cars

Still with the dealer? In Europe the answer would have been yes because of the Type 2 (up to 3 phase, only one used in the i8) standard. All EVs need to have that socket. In the US it's a 1 Phase socket, no idea if it is the same. If it physically fits you are fine, the car controls the charging power, etc. If the port lights go blue you are in business.
