In the Taycan's Brochure (On Page 51 under "Important Information") Porsche recommends that "the maximum charge status of the high-voltage battery should be set to approx. 80%" if you plan on charging the Taycan on a daily basis.

Their reasoning in the brochure seems to be "For physical and chemical reasons, the charging speed decreases as the battery approaches its full capacity. Therefore, it usually makes sense to use fast DC charging to charge the battery up to 80% or up to the required range."

I've seen this suggested for Teslas and other EVs, I assume this is the sweet spot for battery longevity?

Yes this has been set for other cars too, generally it is best not to go all the way up and even more importantly not all the way down to empty. And most importantly not to leave in either condition for long periods of time (I mean weeks not hours). But is there a setting to allow for max charge level? I don’t see it.
