Great to know its a 14-50. Can someone please measure the length of the cable?
I assume 25ft but I can't seem to find it listed anywhere in the specs.

For our brand new 2019 Leaf, after professional installation of a 14/50 circuit, with the plug in the receptacle, (but not attached to the car), there was a loud bang and the breaker flipped. Is there something special about the Nissan Leaf plug - like neutral is not supposed to be connected??

The EVSE still works fine on 110-120 but I dare not try it again on the 200 till the dealer explains what is going on. 50 amps could do some real damage to a human being.
If you are comfortable using a voltmeter measure the installed 14-50R to make sure it was wired properly.

I worked for a company that sold equipment connected to 14-50R Receptacles. 1 out of 10 times when we went to install the equipment we would find newly wired 14-50Rs miss-wired professionally.

Here’s the diagram.

Definitely shorter than 25 feet. It’s probably 18-20 ft max. I replaced a 25 ft Clipper Creek with a Nissan 120/240v OEM ESEV and the cord was is much shorter on the Nissan EVSE. It wouldn’t reach my Leaf where it was parked but the Clipper Creek easily reached.

The one that came with my 2018 Leaf is 21 ft long...from the AC plug to the end of the connector.

I second getting a multimeter to check the voltage. Also, the Nissan EVSE is very picky about voltage and won't work if it's not around 240V.
