GM is overly protective of the Volt's battery
It's important to keep in mind that EREV's are fundamentally different creatures than BEV's when it comes to comparing their percentage of usable battery capacity.

Since many EREV owners will drain the entire usable battery capacity on a daily basis (or even multiple times per day), the usable capacity of an EREV necessarily has to be much more conservative than a BEV.

In contrast, most BEV owners will LITERALLY NEVER fully drain their battery, because, if they do, they'll be stranded on the side of the road and need a tow.
