I have never thought Night Vision Assist will kick in the city limits, but last night i was a bit reckless and floored it at a corner when a person was walking came out of no where..
i Moved lanes right away to the far lane to avoid him. i only blame my self & am sure he probably felt safe J walking, am sure he is still in WTF moment till now.
when Night Vision Assist kicked in it flashed him and gave me the thermal cam and warning's i am very impressed :)

Same here. I’m selling my Aston on Monday because it is sitting in the garage with hardly any use the past 8 months since I got the Taycan.

Very cool. Did you have the night vision selected in the center display or did it 'kick in' automatically?

I don’t have night vision assist, and don’t really understand it. How do you know it spotted something unless you happen to be looking down at the dash? Is there an audible alert?

It kicks in automatically.
It is part of the safety system.
It can determine the difference between humans and animals.
Within the city limits it ignores animals as these may be leached dogs which is no danger of course.
It only works below a certain temperature to have enough difference in heat signature.
I have it my car but sometimes it's just overactive (upcoming bicycles in the line of driving, while I'm coming out of a corner) but it's cool, very cool.
It sees people walking on the sidewalk which I wasn't aware of, lol! :)

It colors it with a yellow square.
I tried to hit what it spotted but you can't, it'll activate the brakes.
So what's the point of targeting while you can't even hit it??
Sssstupid.

So there's no audible alert? I don't think I'd notice it if it's just a visual alert in the dashboard screen. My eyes are on the road.

Yes, there is: "collision warning" with audible warning.
You can set it to early, normal or late warning.
I have set it to late, otherwise it's too sensitive.

Had that warning a few times in city. Very nice that it actually works in the background and you do not need to monitor the thermal image manually.
