8 capacity bars remaining.
As was mentioned, get proof of the original "sell" date as the 5yr/60k mile capacity warranty is transferable
(e.g. follows the car).
Addendum: The warranty text from the booklet:
LITHIUM–ION BATTERY COVERAGE
The Lithium-Ion coverage period is 96 months or
100,000 miles, whichever comes first. This war-
ranty covers any repairs needed to correct defects
in materials or workmanship subject to the exclu-
sions listed under the heading WHAT IS NOT
COVERED. This warranty period is 96 months or
100,000 miles, whichever comes first.
2013 NEW ELECTRIC VEHICLE LIMITED WARRANTY 7
LITHIUM-ION BATTERY CAPACITY COVERAGE
In addition to the Lithium-Ion Battery Coverage for
defects in materials or workmanship, the Lithium-
Ion battery is also warranted against capacity loss
below nine bars of capacity as shown on the vehi-
cle’s battery capacity level gauge for a period of
60 months or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first.
This warranty covers any repairs needed to return
battery capacity to a level of nine remaining bars
on the vehicle’s battery capacity level gauge. If
possible, the Lithium-Ion battery components will
be repaired or replaced, and the original Lithium-
Ion battery will be returned to the vehicle. If nec-
essary, the Lithium-Ion battery will be replaced
with either a new or remanufactured Lithium-Ion
battery. Any repair or replacement made under this
Lithium-Ion Battery Capacity Coverage may not
return your Lithium-Ion battery to an “as new”
condition with all 12 battery capacity bars, but it
will provide the vehicle with a capacity level of nine
bars or more on the battery capacity level gauge.
