So very similar to the PHEV overall. Does the battery SOC indicator included an estimate of EV miles like the PHEV? I think that's the source of the confusion that when the EV range is 0 miles there are still some number of bars left on the display which is very different from how the gas gauge display works. Empty means empty for the gas gauge but not for the battery gauge.Has a charge (SOC) meter that on flattish roads (I live in Ohio) stays within two increments of "half" full about 80 percent of the time during warm weather. Range remaining number which for me is not a very useful number until it is less than 100 miles (it does not consider EV miles). A power meter analog style that shows whether battery is charging or discharging. And of course there is an optional hybrid display to show power flow. Finally there is an instant mpg gauge and an average mpg number display.
I would think from a user interface point of view it would be better to make the SOC meter work like the gas gauge. There's no reason for the SOC display to show unusable capacity. Most people don't know or don't care that the battery is not completely discharged when switching to HEV mode, just that there is no usable charge left.
Again, nit-pickers gonna pick nits.
