Porsche hasn't said a whole lot about whether the Taycan will have a regen braking system, but it goes without saying. Not only will it reduce the wear on the vehicles brakes, but it will also help to recuperate lost energy from spirited driving.

EV's in general have a lot less maintenance and running costs. I know some automakers have also developed regenerative suspension systems (Audi) but I don't think its been implemented in any production vehicle yet.

Saving what you would have spent on maintenance on an ICE car in a separate account would probably amount to the cost of replacing the battery.
Lowering battery costs should help making these even more feasible for the long-term (that's what i'm in for)

Since some automakers like Nissan are already offering battery refurbishment/replacement programs, I expect that we will see something similar across the industry, as we transition towards electrics. I wouldn't expect to see any major degradation until at least +5 years.

If we peel back the covers and see who's behind these programs it just might be a company like Magna that can better deal with these and deal with the overhead.

I hope that Porsche and other premium EV manufacturers prioritize a second life for removed batteries. Whether this be using them in their charging stations or providing an energy supply in places that its needed.

A big market that will come up are homes that are self sustaining, much like what Tesla is rolling out already. I bet these car batteries can find a second life repurposed that way.

If what we are seeing from Nissan is any indication, most EV manufacturers will have to explore these kinds of solutions for unused battery packs. Entire stadiums and various city blocks are always being powered by second life Leaf batteries.

Where we might see real change happen with recycling these batteries are with third party companies that buy and prepare these for other usages. Often, for car makers its too much to take on.

The Taycan will be able to regenerate up to 265 kW when braking. 90% of all of the braking done by the Taycan will be through brake regeneration.
