Is that shortening the battery life, hard to say since my wife is over +50K miles on her 2018 and she drives it dead, a lot and also charges it to 100% and forgets about it, a lot.
Somehow, her battery SoH is still above +90%
Maybe we should dub that pack the "Masochist Pack" - in honor of your wife's poor car.
I just checked her Leaf today and she did finally break the 90% barrier, down to around 89% now, so I have to admire that the pack has even lasted this long. I think she is close to over +400 QC now. I don't understand how she is driving more miles than me per month as I'm averaging between 4k to 5k miles, somehow she tops that and stays ahead of me. I guess we are both in a race to break the 60k miles barrier before the end of the year.
Actually, I do know what it is. When she was driving her ICE (which was a very reliable wagon style vehicle), she had some *mental* limits due to fuel cost, maintenance (oil changes, the usually stuff that is frequent when you drive a lot of miles) in how often she would drive around. Once she got her Leaf and oil changes, belts, whatever, fuel cost goes out the window, now she drives the Leaf so much, she almost lives in it, seems like sometimes.
