Thank you for this! It is interesting that GM engineers determined that the battery chemistry could withstand more energetic exercising over an expected battery life (as arbitrarily determined by them). And why not? After all, the average car is going to be scrapped long before the battery has reached its end-of-life, imo.

Could a well-maintained Gen1 Volt last years longer with a still functioning battery compared to a similarly treated Gen2...probably, imo; I'm talkin' "Classic Car".;)

The more I learn about this car, the more impressed I am. Very happy with my 2018 Volt!

The Voltec technology is a gem of engineering design that GM Engineering has to be extremely proud. It is a truly amazing technology!
