Is a used hybrid lexus over 100k km bad?

got my eyes on a few hybrid ct200h, all are close or more than 100k km, does this mean their batteries are close to reaching their lifespan if they've hit 100k km mark?

1. 2015 CT200H, NO ACCIDENTS, driven 107,000km, costs $17K+tax
2. 2014 CT200H, NO ACCIDENTS, driven 94,500k, costs $17.5K+tax
3. 2014 CT200H, NO ACCIDENTS, driven 83,800km, costs $19k+tax
4. 2013 ES350, NO ACCIDENTS, driven 60,000km, costs, $18,200+tax

For me, keeping monthly costs low is biggest factor. ES will cost $35 more in insurance than CT200 and will obviously cost lot more in gas. However, I'll be driving 5k-30k km at most annually. For sure less than 10k km this year.

I keep hearing how the hybrid battery will start to worn out after 8-10 years and therefore ES is a better option as I will not have to deal with battery cost.

What option should I pick?

Underneath, it's the same thing as a Prius, but Lexus badging/interior/styling. Prius are some of the most reliable vehicles around, hitting 400k no problem with taxi/fleet use. Battery is good for 15 years before replacing, depends if the vehicle sat or was being adequately/regularly cycled so make sure it you get a stack of recorded information on it.

If that's the biggest factor, why not just look at a loaded Camry or Prius? They're basically the same rebadged cars you're looking at and you probably won't notice much difference.

Don't quote me but isn't the hybrid battery warrantied for 8 years, so there should be plenty of warranty left on these cars for the hybrid battery.
I own an older gen ES350 since 2012 and it has been super reliable but the price seems high for an 8 year plus model.
