How Low Can You Go? Is there a way to kWhs left in battery?

Got home at 2% (2.62 kWhs) which, yes Truck, is five city miles, but 1.5 hwy miles at 75 mph.

Is there way to show kWhs left in the battery?

Knowing the roads I am going to drive on, I think I can calculate the range better than the truck's computer, which averages your last few few minutes of driving.

Driving 90 miles home, I had plenty range - about 123 miles. <40 degrees, cruise set on 75, climate control on, I notice that with 13 miles to go, the truck warned of 12 miles left. Uh-oh.

I decided I will not give in range anxiety! Dropped speed to 55 and drove right by a supercharger. Then came a warning: "Nearest Charger is outside of your range. Plan to find a power outlet where you can charge."

Seems a little late.

@Ford Motor Company Maybe make this warning to say "The last charger before your stuck on the side of road is..."

I got home yesterday on 1%. I figured I was OK because I was only an eighth of a mile minus from the house. I had to hit about three traffic lights on the way to the house, When light went green stepped on the pedal, but notice I didn’t get that jolt of speed that usually pushes me back in my seat! In fact, it felt like the vehicle was slowing down! Kind of like with a IDE vehicle is extremely low on fuel and you step on the accelerator and you get a little bit of speed, but it slows down because there’s not enough fuel to reach the injectors. Made it to the house OK, but that strange slow down did make me a little nervous!

Was that a safety feature or was I truly almost out of battery?
