CAC varied this year between a low of 155.12 (3/20/15) and a high of 156.20 (1/18/16). I question how accurate these readings are since I still have never done a range charge or gone below 50% S.O.C. But I am pretty certain there has been minimal if any degradation to the battery over the last year, even though I have driven more this year than previous years.
