### Does age of EV battery matters if it has low mileage?

A helpful member of the InsideEV forum directed me to post over here. I have a question that I can't seem to find the definitive answer to no matter how I Google it. Is the life of a liquid-cooled EV battery shortened by passage of time? I am in the market for a used EV that will last me for for a while. I found a 2014 FFE that is listed within my budget. The car is around 6 years old, but have low 5 digits mileage on it. I am talking about just breaking 10,000 miles on the odometer. My daily commute is about 50 miles round trip. Should I be concern that the battery will give out in a few years? How can I find out the remaining capacity of this FFE before I complete the purchase? Your input most be most appreciated! Thank you!

p.s. Also, how much would you think would be a fair price on an FFE like this out in California?
