If my spark ev is still under battery warranty, and if its max range is around 60 after gradual degradation, am I able to get the hybrid battery replaced under the battery warranty?

Your range is a function of your driving habits AND the HV battery capacity. The real question is this - at what MEASURED battery capacity level and odometer mileage must a battery be to qualify for a replacement?

Good question, I think I read some posts saying it has to degrade beyond 35% original capacity for it be replaced under warranty.
