The previous poster looks like he got it right. The regen on pedal lift is weak. To maximize it you need to get the brake involved somehow. His comment appears to do that. InnoDrive on the downslope. The 265 is a maximum.Depends on the regen setting. On, your car will slow down. Off, you will probably hold speed (force from gravity = force from wind resistance), depending of course on speed.
Depends on the regen setting. On, your car will likely continue accelerating, but slowly. Off, your car will accelerate faster.
I think you are possibly missing the point - that is regardless of speed, regen setting, pressing brake pedal, lifting off the accelerator - with this car if you are slowing down (other than because you are now going UP a grade) then the car is using regen to slow down, capturing kinetic energy and returning it to the battery (with a conversion loss). The regen setting doesn't enable / disable this - it only affects if regen kicks in when you lift off of the accelerator. 265W of regen is significant force - you will be stopping plenty hard before the hydraulic brakes even kick in (until of course your speed gets too low.
This quote from the Porsche Taycan Press Kit Technology Workshop
In the Taycan, Porsche takes its own approach in a number of ways within these parameters:
• The maximum potential recuperation capacity of up to 265 kW is significantly greater than
that of most competitors, decelerations of up to 3.8 m/s2 are recuperated.
• When the accelerator pedal is released, the Taycan is designed to always roll or coast as far
as possible; the available kinetic energy is reserved for dealing with the driving route.
• Recuperation takes place only when the brake pedal is pressed, but then, as mentioned above, with a very high level of energy recovery.
With the strategy of controlling recuperation mainly via the brake pedal, the customer experiences reproducible and predictable deceleration behaviour which is independent of battery charge and temperature. Testing has shown that, Thanks to the Taycan’s high recuperation output of up to 265 kW, approximately 90 percent of braking operations in everyday use are performed by the electric motors alone, without activating the wheel brakes. For this reason and for the first time ever, Porsche is prescribing a time-dependent replacement interval for the brake pads: they must be replaced every
