Bolt Longevity

Has anyone reached the 100,000+ mile mark yet with their Bolt? If so, how are they holding up? I'm seriously thinking about buying a low mileage used one soon, but I'm worried about longevity. I'm thinking that if they can make it out to 150,000 miles with 80% of their original range, then this is a very doable venture, because by then you will have gotten your money's worth out of the vehicle. Anybody there yet, or close?

On the other end of mileage, these cars are great if you don't drive much. It can sit in your garage for a week, and start right up.
I had an inkling of this with my battery powered lawnmower. I didn't use it for two years--stored it in my unheated garage. Had a mowing service. Then last spring I decided to try mowing again, and it started right up, as though I had just used it yesterday. So I figure Ecars are much more reliable engine-wise than gas cars. Fewer moving parts.
