According to ssd-vs-hdd-report, Windows does not allow a reliable way to collect information about a SSD disks.
However we can identify the SSDs from the Inv_HW_Logical_Device data class.
You can copy the following query to create your own report:
v.[Name] AS [Computer Name],
cs.[Model] AS [Computer Model],
ld.[Device ID] as Drive,
CAST((ISNULL(ld.[Size (Bytes)], 0)/(1024 * 1024 * 1024)) AS DECIMAL (10, 2)) AS 'Total Disk Space (GB)',
CAST((ISNULL(ld.[Free Space (Bytes)], 0)/(1024 * 1024 * 1024)) AS DECIMAL (10, 2)) AS 'Free Disk Space (GB)'

FROM vComputer v
INNER JOIN Inv_HW_Logical_Device hwl
ON v.Guid = hwl._ResourceGuid
INNER JOIN vHWComputerSystem cs
ON cs._ResourceGuid = v.Guid
INNER JOIN Inv_HW_Logical_Disk ld
ON ld._ResourceGuid = v.Guid
WHERE hwl.Model LIKE '%SSD%'
