It's the State of Health (SoH) field that you want to look at. You are down to 79% so I think you will carry on dropping to 70% and get a new battery soon.

That's right, you're at 79.1% battery health. Once you hit <= 70%, you will get a new battery pack. Nevertheless, in my opinion, it's worth taking in your car to the dealership now and get an official State of Health (SOH) report, just to confirm that what you're seeing in Torque is accurate. Just know that it may/will end up costing you $100+ for the report (if you're over 70%).

If you don't mind, could you create a new thread for your car? That way we can monitor the condition of your battery pack separately. I'd like to keep this thread as sort of a diary regarding my vehicle.

Update on my car after exactly 6 months and 5k miles later:

SOH is down to 107.4%. The Min/Max cell voltages look good (both are equivalent). However, the Min/Max deterioration values have changed. The max det is at 4.7% on cell #95, and the min det is at 0.4% on cell #16. This is up from 0.1% from 2 months ago.

TorquePro, costs about $5. It's a bit challenging to download the codes the OBD device sends to the phone.
