One of the most impressive aspects of the Taycan, aside from its performance, is it's regenerative braking capability. The Taycan will be able to regenerate up to 265 kW when braking, including under high performance conditions. In fact, 90% of all of the braking done by the Taycan will be through brake regeneration.

Porsche says that lifetime brake road wear is dramatically increased for the Taycan. But they say the brake pads need to be replaced every six years.

It'll be a relief for many that there will be no one-pedal driving for the Taycan. regeneration is controlled using the brake pedal only.

Here are the specs for the Turbo and Turbo S' brakes that will be responsible for that regeneration.

Turbo:
Front axle brakes: 10 piston, 415 mm PSCB (Porsche Surface Coated Brakes) disc brakes.
Rear axle brakes: 4 piston, 365 mm PSCB disc brakes.

Turbo S:
Front axle brakes: 10 piston, 420 mm PCCB (Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes) disc brakes.
Rear axle brakes: 4 piston 410 mm PCCB disc brakes.
