Tesla EV charger

I've been installing a number of smaller EV chargers and they're pretty straight forward.

This Tesla charger has settings from.... maximum output: 80A, 72A, 64A, 56A, 48A, 40A, 36A,
32A, 28A, 24A, 20A, 16A, minimum output: 12A.

Based on the code...... I will need a disconnect on this charger if I power it from a circuit breaker larger than 60A. My customer is not sure what charging rate he wants but needs a price.

NEC: "625.23 Disconnecting Means. For electric vehicle supply equipment rated more than 60 amperes or more than 150 volts to ground, the disconnecting means shall be provided and installed in a readily accessible location".

Any comments ?

Readily accessible disconnect - The breaker in the panel should count. Doesn't say within site or otherwise specify a distance. Have to get a breaker lock-out, though.

Looks like it got moved for 2014 and moved again in 2017.
625.423 Disconnecting Means. For electric vehicle supply equipment rated more than 60 amperes or more than 150 volts to ground, the disconnecting means shall be provided and installed in a readily accessible location. The disconnecting means shall be lockable open in accordance with 110.25.

If the charger has a plug on it I believe that qualifies as disconnect.

No..... the "charger" is a direct wire with a 1" KO.
