As for the "260 kW" charging, you should know better.
Miles of range added per minute in the SoC intervals you charge the car is the metric of merit
No, I would never look at "miles of range" added per time unit as miles aren't a unit of energy. That seems like a very Tesla-centric thing. Neither of my EVs says anything about miles of range added per time unit. I'm not aware of any other non-Tesla plug-in vehicles that express that in their UI.
The EVgo and Electrify America DC FCs and ChargePoint J1772 EVSEs I use say nothing about how many "miles" were added on their screens. EVgo's app and emails also don't say anything about miles. Ditto for EA's emails and I believe their app.
And, the "miles" added would always be wrong anyway unless your future driving exactly matched whatever (unpublished?) miles/kWh constant was being used. So, even if some other vehicles or UI's gave such a value, it's of little value to me unless I knew that constant and whether that was realistic/would match my future driving.

Tesla actually from the early Model S days offered a 2nd OBC and equipped some high end S with them for 80 amps of AC charging --> 19.2 kW. Eventually, that went away and the max was 72 amps (on S and X). Maybe a year ago or so, Tesla decided to make 48 amps the max in the US (https://www.tesla.com/support/home-char ... rd-charger
) on new vehicles. I wonder if they will change their mind.
In the US, the 3 and Y never shipped with above 48 amps of OBC.
I found the piece about Tesla changing from 72 amps of OBC at max in the US to 48 amps: https://electrek.co/2018/11/10/tesla-mo ... e-changes/
. It happened two years ago.
Also, gen 3 wall connector (https://www.tesla.com/support/home-char ... -connector
) is now only 48 amps max. Previous gens were 80 amp max output on a 100 amp circuit. My work has a bunch of gen 2's and previously had two different versions of gen 1's (see bottom of https://www.tesla.com/support/home-char ... generation
