Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
With a 115 km range on one charge I don't see how 1,000 charge cycles equals ten years.  Assuming 5 charge cycles per week for fifty weeks per year this would give about four years.  But 115 km is a very practical range for a lot of commuters and the cost to recharge, ex possible battery replacement cost, is good.
