Even at 15%, the power needle was still pointing to Max. I got the warning at 31 miles but performance did not change, even on the highway at 62 mph. Maybe you live in a very hot climate or are driving really fast with all A/C on full blast? I was driving as gently as I could in Eco mode the entire trip with the A/C set at 77 F (wearing shorts and a t-shirt, it was quite comfortable).
Nope, this was 6:30am in the morning on the way to work. Cool morning ( 63 deg F) with an overcast marine layer, no ac or even heat running. Driving was on the freeway at 70 most of the way but the last mile is on surface streets. This happens each time the battery gets down to the last 40 miles

Regen works very well the faster you’re going, but it’s worthless at low speeds and cannot stop the vehicle.
Using B mode at low speeds will slow my car almost to a stop, which works great in slow traffic. So, I think you are over exaggerating when you say “worthless” because it’s not.
