If you make an untrue statement, and I quote that statement, saying you said it, then everything I said is true. All I've said is that you said something. That your statement was untrue doesn't make mine untrue as well.

I definitely don't know what relevance that has to my statements. I never wrote anything about whether it's true that 24 kWh are or are not available, never mind made a claim as to why that might or might not be the case.

I know people with 120,000 miles on their 2015 24 kwh pack and not even halfway to losing their first bar along with 30 kwh owners who are on the cusp of their 2ND pack replacement under warranty...
Sure. As I mentioned in the outset, our battery pack only showed significant signs of degradation after we started seeing the problem with the 12V battery getting run down and the dealer asked us to try to reproduce it (they wanted us to be able to bring the car in immediately after it happened, to check the stored error codes...this pattern was repeated several times over a short period).
There is a possibility that we could buy a new battery pack and, taking better care of it, it would last for eight, ten, or whatever years, vs the six we are looking at now (and to be clear, the current battery pack isn't dead...it's just that we're seeing enough loss of range that we're noticing it in our daily use of the car). Of course, it's also possible that the newer battery pack would be manufactured even more poorly than the one that came with the car, and wouldn't last even as long.
It's dangerous, trying to predict the future. The best I know how to do is look at the past and extrapolate from there, modifying that analysis only when presented with facts
that clearly give a reason to.
