Energy App on Dashboard

New owner here. For the energy app on the dashboard, can someone explain what the little meter is telling me on the outer edge of the circle as I accelerate and decelerate?

I think that it is just telling me when I am using energy versus regenerating energy, but the scale of the units don't seem to make sense to me. For example the first positive tick mark is 75, but when I see the meter get to 75, I am sure I am using way more than 75 wH/mi. What am I missing?
