    True enough, I've been in 1-barLand several times (and you don't need to be at high speed - try backing up a hill with a lowish SOC, goes all the way down rapidly).

    The 40% figure is a "normal" floor for the SOC range. I think we were trying to clarify that the 40% refers to SOC rather than 40% of cells in the batt.

    Cheers
