Bolt battery degradation is unknown, and the GM warranty replacement at under 60% capacity is nothing to swoon over.
OTOH, GM/LG Chem does have a excellent track record with the Volt and its active TMS
There is a whole lot of inferences and hope there:
That the Volt PHEV record translates to the Bolt
That the Volt battery health is even real. Those owners do not monitor battery degradation. The best they know is that range has remained the same for a couple of years, but they do not know if the battery reserve is being consumed.
