Hi, from the owners manual they said..

Gradual capacity loss of the high voltage battery is expected and not covered under warranty. Greater than normal degradation is covered for 8 years or 100,000 miles, and can be determined by an authorized Honda Clarity Plug-In Hybrid dealer.


Does anyone know what the normal expected degradation is over the 8 years?
My normal daily driving is under 50 miles a day so I am hoping I can use the battery most of the time.

Thanks
Hoov

Degradation varies quite a bit from vehicle to vehicle, though its expected for there to be a loss of a few percent each year. But with battery calibration and your computer learning its parameters, I wouldn't expect any significant loss in your first few years of ownership.

I think we might have to look up a guide or something that covers best practices to ensure we get the most from our batteries.
When the habits are often small and easy, it goes a long way if you plan on being a long-term owner.
