I shut down and closed my 2020 4S on March 8, without any trickle charger or tethering to the PMCC/EVSE, and with Interior Monitoring off. SoC was 58%. Then went to enjoy the Colorado mountains for a month. As usual, I refrained from using the Connect app meanwhile or from logging in to the website. Last night, I came back to New Jersey and checked the Taycan this morning. It opened and started up without any hesitation, showing a 57% SoC. 1% SoC lost after a month of standing still! I was happy and impressed and feel confident that I can leave the car for several months without any concern.

Great news I'll be leaving town for two months this make me feel confident that I won't need a trickle charger. Thanks for sharing. I assume you locked the car.

@chuckster , yes, I locked the car but kept Interior Monitoring off. Have a safe trip.

That's pretty amazing. I left the car unused for 15 weeks (lockdown over here) and lost 16% of the battery in that time. Yes, it was hell not driving it for that period! Was pretty pleased with 1% per week. However, I left the interior monitoring and parking brake on, and occasionally turned the car on every 10 days or so to make sure the 12V was charged up. Also used the connect app during that time.

Thanks for the additional data, @DocB . 1% per week is indeed already a comfortable number, but it does seem as if Interior Monitoring, the periodic switch-on, and/or the Connect check-ins may have some impact on the stationary power consumption.
