First, constant QC charges seem to boost at least the indicated SOH. Second, note that the car was tested "By Kia." Last, there are plenty of reports of lost capacity and range in the Soul forum on this site. If I could find a report by a 2014 Leaf owner with similar stats, would you stop believing that Leaf batteries have issues with degradation...?
I do not believe or care about Leaf batteries at all. I never made any remarks about other EV batteries degradation, but the one made by Hyundai. This is Kia EV thread, so I discuss their EV related subjects. Kia owners use TP (Torque Pro) app and it displays more info than Leaf Spy would ever show, so he knew, very well, what his battery state was. "tested "By Kia." - simply means dealer confirmed his own finding during routine test while visiting dealer, same tests also offered by Nissan dealers for their EV cars. In fact, dealer test shown 98%, while in reality it was no degradation at all as his internal BMS 95% vs. display 100% is what any new battery would show, because of Hyundai allocated 5% buffer officially, but unofficially it is even more and more is merrier. Similarly, low buffer exists (5%) which makes riding to literally zero miles left an ordinary routine, nothing like freaky "!!! the sky are falling!!!" experience on other EVs. The reason I posted info about Hyundai EV batteries was to misspell much of the concerns with this issue on EV, that many folks keep bringing up when it comes to EV.
