Loading speed of what? But yes, a lot of improvements can be made with software.
I believe the MME allows up to 150Kwh charging speed. And I wonder if this can be improved and increased with OTA update.

The charging curve is much more important than the peak charging speed, and yes Ford has said they will be improving the charging curve with an OTA update.

The max speed is based on EA chargers which are 450A max current (170kW ish max theoretical at 80% SoC).

The curve of when it slows down is a different story.

I really, really hope they do this. Seeing how fast the Audis and Taycans charge is crazy.

Taycan is 800V, not 400V, so there is no way to get to that level. On 400V, 200KW is max charging you can get.

Well it would be nice to get sustained speeds of 200kw while DCFC…
