Motor vehicle Vehicle Car Steering part Automotive design

is it 0 or not? anyone else get this ? is there a calibration issue here?
sorry of this has been addressed already, but they installed a charge point near my office , and I'm trying to go 100% battery, so paying more attention than usual to extra battery power.

15% is kept as a buffer to improve long term battery longevity. This part of the battery not accessible to Karma owners.
The buffer is also used as a reserve when operating off of the ICE/generator. If you accelerate hard/continuously when the battery miles are it zero, it sometimes turns the indicator orange and gives you a warning because you have dipped too far into the reserve.

Yes, perfectly normal, the "gas gauge" style indicator shows (approximate) "real charge in battery" including the 15% reserve, while the "miles left" indicator shows how far until the computer turns on the gasoline range-extender.
