Instead of mocking me, how about just spend 2 seconds to think and directly address my points?
The BMS issue with the bolts? Not degradation issues.
As for your narrative, what is it other than to argue for the sake of argument?
Totally missing my point.
Ok, my point restated again.
Suppose someone is commuting with a Bolt 150 miles per day. In a place where it never rains, and the wind doesn't blow, and there is no traffic. In such a world, the GOM is accurate. This person is counting on the Bolt going 150 miles per day each and every day. Flat tires are such happen, but they are quickly fixed . Then something starts happening. Every month, the GOM after the trip is 10 miles less. After ending with with 88 miles for months, it drops to 78 miles, then 68, then 58, then 48, then 38 ... gets worried and takes the Bolt into the dealer. Dealer checks capacity, and says you still have 78% of capacity, not covered by warranty. Drives another month, now 28. Next month 18. Next month 8. Takes to dealer again. Dealer checks capacity and says you still have 66% of capacity, not covered by warranty. So what happens next month?
Oh, and about Tesla.
