The battery on the Ampera is 15KWh but the battery management system restricts the charge to 65%. This saves battery life and provides a buffer which can be used once the battery range starts to reduce.

This means that as the range of the the battery reduces over time so the battery management system uses a bit more of that buffer meaning the real range is not affected.
