Bolt EV DCFC at home

What would it cost to install DCFC at home?

Are there units suitable for home use? Which brands and models?

I currently have a 40 amp cable to the garage and a 200 amp breaker box,

Do I need three phase power? Digging up the street would be pretty expensive and the HOA would probably not permit overhead lines. Or, is the standard residential distribution line three phase and they just give different legs to different houses?

Or, is the whole ideas unfeasible?

Interesting stuff. I never realized the transmission losses of HVDC were less than AC. Though it seems like it only makes sense at very long distances because the AC/DC conversion equipment is expensive. Grounding the conversion stations also sounds very involved.
