500 cycles will yield 150,000 to 200,000 miles at 100% discharge. And at 70% discharge it is 105,000 to 140,000 miles.

How long will it take you to drive that many miles?
I don't think you can add it up that way. We are at 70 miles range now with the Leaf and MiEV. The range with the new battery will be 150 miles max. And, regardless of the range that is used, I would actually think a lifetime of 500 cycles would be much closer to, 500 charge cycles even if the discharge was only 50%. I would have to hope for much more than 500 cycles. The nano technology should take us way past that on the first generation as this concept is way more important for longevity than power density.
