Default Help needed pertaining to 50 AMP outet with cables etc

Hello. I am not an electrician but I am asking these questions so that I know what's going on. I need a Nema 14-50 outlet to charge my electric car. I have a 32 AMP charger currently.
The distance from my panel to the outlet will be 22 feet. I have GE panel. I am set to hire this licensed electrician who told me that I would need the following.

2 Pole 50 AMP circuit breaker GE
25 feet of 6/3 SOOW cable
one Nema 14-50 outlet

This is the main list. He recommended me this cable because I want a portable movable outlet since my garage has two openings and my car could be at either one of them.

Since this is a 6/3 cord, does it include ground? Thanks in advance for all your help.

You electrician should just buy his own material.

Is that a real poncho or is that a Sears poncho?

One reason not to give DIY advice:
Catch a man a fish and you can sell it to him.
Teach a man to fish and you’ve ruined a good business opportunity.
