Looks like battery deterioration gets noticable after 1500-2000 charges. If they charged daily, probably about a thousand charges so far.
I drive about 150 miles per week so not a heavy user, assuming nothing is broken when I get it, I expect it to last a long time.
I did check the Batt.Kapa on my current 2019 i3, shows 38.4. Should I look for at least 34+?
I don't recall any reports of significant 94 Ah or 120 Ah battery cell deterioration. 60 Ah battery cells seem to be much more prone to significant deterioration. So I would not be concerned about 94 Ah or 120 Ah battery cell deterioration but would definitely avoid buying a 60 Ah i3 (2013-2016 models).
