Actually the 6-50 is very common on EVSEs -- from the old Blink, to the EVSE with at least five names, to the ChargePoint Home, to the Siemens VersiCharge, to the GE WattStation, to Aerovironment, to Leviton... I think it's actually the most common EVSE plug type, at least by by the number of models of that support it. It's also an option for some Clipper Creek models, but of course you can get 14-50's there, too; and 14-50 is standard for JuiceBox, typical for OpenEVSE, etc.
I stand corrected, I just checked Amazon and they do have quite a few EVSEs still using the 6-50 plug. When you think of it the 6-xx standard makes the most sense for EVSE as it doesn't have a neutral and EVSE don't use the neutral. What I personally don't like about the 6-50 is it will only plug into a 6-50 outlet, a 14-50 plug OTH(with the neutral pin missing) will plug into not only a 14-50 outlet but also a 6-50 outlet, so it's dual purpose. Your also more likely to run into a 14-50 outlet than 6-50 as 14-50s are used in most campgrounds(why I believe Tesla might use it) and for modern ranges, it looks like the 6-50 outlet is mostly used for welders.
