That article seems odd. First, for storage, they are shipped at roughly 35% for most Li batteries.
Then 75-65% charge window x 12,000 cycles for our cars is 108,000 kWh x 2.5 mi/kwh = 270,000 miles.
For 100-25% charge window x 2,010 is 135,675 kWh x 2.5 mi/kWh = 339,187 miles.
For 75-25% it's 798,750 miles?
Somebody check my math, I'm assuming 90 kWh battery size.
NOTE: EVs with regen cycle more than those number. Miles are just comparisons. The C rates of charging, discharging, and regeneration are a major factor as well. Heavy foot, lots of regen, shorter battery life. But that's no different than an ICE car. Lots of WOT, lots of high RPM decel, reduces engine life dramatically.
