Is 6 blue bars on battery icon indicate a full charge?

Green indicates a full charge, or nearly full.  Blue indicates it's
below full.

But, below full is not a bad thing.  It leaves room to store more
energy from the regenerative braking system.  6 blue bars is where
mine is most often during normal driving.

No, it's not.  It's where the car should spend most of its time, inside
that middle level of bars.

If it's always green or always red, something's probably wrong.

I don't think I have ever seen red--but maybe that's just because I'm a
bit color blind.  I take it if I ever get down to just one bar, it will
be red?
