This thing is putting nearly a quarter megawatt (240kw) drain on the power grid during use.
The quick charging station probably has some sort of means to store charge (e.g. large capacitors [boron/carbon nanotube supercapacitors?]), which can be charged over a great amount of time, and then quickly dissipated in to the automobile.
Even without TRIM you should expect similar performance characteristics until the cells in a specific region of the drive start to fail, because the drive doesn't know when its safe to reclaim blocks for the wear-leveling-- To have any wear leveling at all without TRIM the drive must actually set aside blocks, making it so that the user doesn't see all of the available space on the drive (when a block is rewritten, the drive can allocate a block elsewhere from the pool of free physical blocks, and then assign the old block to the pool of free blocks).
For this reason I use Internet2, Level 3's (22.214.171.124 - 126.96.36.199), and now google's dns servers.

And, even in a good office, I'd be amazed if even half of them got recycled into the system, and not lost/thrown away.
