Pro-tip: If your Taycan spends a lot of time sitting the the garage, do not keep the battery full. It will last a lot longer if the cells are down at or below 4.0V when just sitting around doing nothing.

    The engineering problems are likely insurmountable. It would be like proposing to land a rocket booster section on a barge floating in the middle of the ocean.

    Coming from a TDI where we vent the tank and fill them all the way up the filler neck and don't think twice about it... that's got to be one of the most annoying things about battery powered vehicles.

    The range is already meh, but to protect the crazy money you spent on the vehicle and ensure a properly long battery lifetime, you have to reduce the range even further by not charging the batteries above a certain point.

    I think I'll be keeping my 600+ mile range for awhile to come yet.... Ok, maybe 450 in the Touareg V10....on a good day.

    Yep, we get about 700 in our Touareg V6 TDI. I don't care how fast an electric car is in theory; the moment a trip length exceeds that car's range, I'll get to the destination sooner. My wife and I did a 600 mile run on Saturday. We stopped twice; once for fuel & potty (~10 mins) and once just for potty (~5 mins). The trip was under 9 hours, door-to-door.
