I'm confused about Kia's warranty on the PHEV traction battery (2018 model).

The 2017 Canadian warranty (https://www.kia.ca/content/Owners/warranty/2017_Kia_Warranty_Manual_en.pdf) has an explicit statement that the battery is warrantied for deterioration to less than 70% of new capacity in the the first 8 years or 160,000km.

However this statement is missing from the 2018 American warranty (https://www.kia.com/us/k3/content/media/all/warranty/2018_warranty_niro_hybrid_and_plug_in_hybrid.pdf). I see no statement at all about an EV capacity warranty.

Am I missing something, or is Kia US indeed offering no warranty related to loss of battery capacity?

Thanks, Jim

Nor in Britain or Europe. Quite the mystery there. Great that Canada mandates an actual number. Mostly 70% is the number that comes up in discussions and I think some other manufacturer's specify it specifically.
