How long can my E-M1 Mk II last?

I have two E-M1 Mk II. I have 175,000 clicks on first one of which 11,000 are using the mechanical shutter. Second E-M1 Mk II has 30,000 clicks of which 4,000 are using mechanical shutter. Theoretically  is it possible to get a million actuations or more out of these cameras if I use the electronic shutter at my present rate.

I have two DSLRs, with the D500 being used the most. Eventually the D500 will wear out because the mechanical shutter and all the other moving parts will wear out. True one can send it back to Nikon for a rebuild, but eventually it will totally wear out where it's not economic to repair. I'm at 43,000 clicks on the D500 and it is less than a year old.
