Does anyone recall reading anywhere what the cable length is for the charging station that comes with the vehicle?

The note about a dedicated NEMA 15-50 240V outlet makes no sense since a 15-50 outlet is 3 phase, which you won't find in North American homes. That could be a typo, but I think they meant NEMA 14-50.

I concur it is probably a typo. A big, unfortunate mistake though.

The order guide has it right:

ChargeCord
  • — Switchable cord end to allow customer charge
    functionality with 120V (NEMA 5-15) up to 15 Amps or
    240V (NEMA 14-50) up to 32 Amps
  • — Portable Charge Cord
  • — Single Phase On-board Charger

240V NEMA 14-50 with a "50" amp breaker will have a sustained 40 amp output. With a competitors charge cord rated to handle sustained 40 amp output, the HVB will have a greater miles per hour charging range.

That’s why I just installed a ChargePoint Home Flex with a 60 amp breaker for a sustained charge rate of 48 amps.
