My garage floor is a concrete slab. Besides, you'd have to get down on your hands and knees, lift the hatch, and then pull out the cable.
To revive this old topic and reiterate: my EVSE is soooo conveniently mounted with the three-foot cord length I normally use and the car parked heading in forward and very close to the right wall to maximize the passageway between cars. I never realized how spoiled rotten I've become for these past five years. Even with the very thick and heavy cord of my new eMotorWerks JuiceBox, this short cable length is quick and easy to plug into the i-MiEV port in seconds. This was brought home to me when I recently used the JuiceBox to charge the Tesla parked in the same location, where the power inlet is located on the left rear of the car. Unwinding and dragging ten feet of cable and then coiling it back up and hanging it up is a real pain in the rear!
Just sayin' - if you're doing a new installation, do spend some time to optimally locate the EVSE (or at least its cable) with respect to the car's charging port: seven seconds and no coiling and clean hands sure beats a half-minute of uncoiling and dragging that cable around!
