This could get under 9 bars within the warranty window

I didn't mean it like that.

And I didn't explain. If an 8 or 9 bar car meets your needs then paying for extra range does not make good sense. If the lower range does not meet your needs, then you paid for a doorstop to speculate. That is the kind of deal I expect PT to offer.

What is under 9 bars? Like 68%?
I think when our 2016 SL at 25K went under 9 bars SOH just a tad under 65%. It went from 9 to 8 bars 3K miles/5 weeks after we purchased it. We got our totalled 2016 to the body shop last Friday and the shop picked up our 2015 parts car that we picked in Washington DC last Dec. Our car was last charged 6 Nov 2020 and the SOH was 96.08. Now 7 months/15 miles later SOH sets at 96.06 per Spy Leaf.

For me it will probably still meet my needs even at 6 bars. Really depends on winter.

I want another EV after getting this one. Not disappointed.
