That can happen between 4-8 Gid typically. The app should use 6 Gid as a relatively predictable middle ground to show zero miles remaining.
I have been to Turtle three times in the past few months in a 2011 that has lost two capacity bars.
It is not based on GID.
All three times it has occurred when kWh remaining hits 0.4 kWh.
But the lowest cell voltage has varied.
It has sometimes been near 3.3.
Sometimes lower like 3.15.
But not as low as 2.9.
It appears to be based on kWh remaining.
And on one occasion the contactor opened at 0.3 kWh.
Often the car will shut down very quickly after Turtle.
You may be lucky to go a half mile.
And with the 20 kW motor power limit, on a steep grade lucky to climb at 10 to 15 mph.
