Sequence of low battery warnings?

The only low battery warning I've seen is around 9 miles remaining range it will pop up a notice saying I'm nearly out of range of local charging stations. And this at a time when the nearest stations it shows are 14 miles away. I've seen youtube videos of Model S's saying to charge soon or car is hutting down, but I haven't seen those yet.

I'd like to pick this convo back up and ask an additional question: When the display reads 0%, are you really at zero range? ICE's typically have a built in reserve of 1/2 a gallon (+/-) of gas. Wondering if the M3 has a built in battery reserve of any kind. Anyone gone to or past 0% or 0 range?
