We’ve done about the same over 5 years. Our use of the iMiev is down somewhat because everyone here prefers the Volt, which now has over 60,000 miles.

One particular observation is that even with greater mileage, the Volt shows no traction battery degradation.

I'm also at just under 51k miles but in 4.5 years. My car had 2100 miles on it when I bought in in 2015.

I just transferred to a new job location in San Leandro, which is about 4 miles from home. I don't even have to get on a freeway which works really well with this little car :D . I love it because I really don't need to plug in but once a week. Before I had to plug in every night although one time I did drive to my old work twice without a charge (forgot to plug in) and made it home the second day on turtle which was the only time I ever been on turtle in this car.

Our little car, 2012, has about 46,000 miles too! I think it usually still gets about 62 RR when fully charged, it's been a while since I fully charged it. Mostly not freeway driving, so that may affect the RR positively.
