Does Bolt EV have a battery buffer like in the Volt? Gen 1 Volt had a 16.5 kwh battery with roughly 10.5 kwh usable (63.6%) from 0-100%. Any mentions about this in the manual? Any daring Bolt EV owners willing to do a 100% -> 0% run and see if the usage is 60 kwh?
The reason I'm asking is I'm curious whether it's "safe" to charge to 100% and back down to 0% on a regular basis, or even occasionally. I know that Tesla's have irreplaceable damage to the battery if it reaches 0% even once, and costs $40k to replace the pack. Tesla has a software safeguard where it shuts down the car before it reaches this level, so this never happens in reality. Similarly, I've read that leaving the battery pack at 100% for an extended period is also bad, especially in the heat. In the Volts, we don't have to worry about this due to the buffer.
