My "240-volt" outlet normally sets around 250 volts. So 48 amp would yield around 12kW.
The actual voltage measured depends on the present loading of that main feeder from the transformer and the distance. At very early morning hours it may go above 250 VAC when no one is using any electrical apliances. My main breaker is on a column that is less than fifty feet from the pedestal transformer (we have buried utilty service), so I get over 250 VAC constantly.

My Fusion updates are done with a SD card that I load with the software on my laptop after downloading from the Ford web page. So just choose the day and time (preferibly at night) to apply the updates. It takes less than 30 minutes.
We should ask for a "retro" option for the MME. An external floppy disc drive for updates. ;)

I recommend planning for your next EVs when you decide to buy a Level 2 EVSE. The next EVs may take higher charger power. You will save money spending more now.
It's hard to know how big batteries will be in 10 years. But I feel pretty good that a 40A charger (like the Grizzl-E I got) should be enough. In 12 hours overnight, it could theoretically deliver about 110 kWh. Overkill now for the MME, where the most I'd ever put in is ~85 kWh (and almost never at that). 50 kWh overnight would be plenty.
