    Li-ion batteries degrade with age as well as use. I'd rather use it as much as possible now than try and "save" the battery for later, when it's going to degrade anyway.

    When I had a commute (lol!) I was charging once a day, occasionally twice in a day depending what I was doing. I wouldn't worry about it.

    Hello, FYI, the PIP I drive has 87k of EV miles and 87k of HV miles and a total of about 175k miles. I’ve been charging minimum of twice a day everyday. I have charged up to 6 times a day many times.i have noticed very minimal battery degradation . In my opinion from what I learned so far is “ drive it however it fits your needs”. It is a great car and I’m sure you will feel the same in time. Enjoy the car and have a great day.

    The range estimation has a very short term memory :)

    Just one thing: You can "ride" a bike or a horse, but you "drive" a car ;)
