70% after only 60,000 miles? That isn't good.

From what I was ready Stage one Hybrids use Ni-MH

 

2012 they were using Li-ion but they were having trouble with heat so they dropped the Manufacturer are going to start using new Batteries made by Hitachi.

 

I believe Ford is doing it right by insuring the HVB are protected from heat and cold by maintaining a tight Temp range by turning on the AC or Heater as required, automatically

You also effect battery capacity by overcharging and deep discharging.  Perhaps some manufactures are setting those so as to get a higher miles / charge rating while sacrificing battery life.
