Only time will tell who is doing it right. Which means we will never know because by that time owner would have been changed more than twice most probably.

True. So why be super careful careful now, if the time the battery would start showing degradation the value of the car is already substantially lower due to age anyway and not even owned by you?

Because it does not cost me anything and because I have 8 years experience with a Toyota Yaris Hybrid with a 1kWh battery and the degradation was very sudden after the 7th year. When it degrades is too late. You cannot sell it and make money out of it.

I have a Citroën C-zero from 2011 where the battery is doing quite okay and it has never been nursed within a narrow range of charge (I bought it from the local municipality, where they didn't care, and I have been charging it to full over night when charging since I bought it), so I guess your batteries may vary.
