Which mode is best for highway driving with little to no traffic? Average highway speeds 65-75 mph...
I would presume that putting it in EV later mode to take full advantage of hybrid mode is best. Versus EV now or Auto where you will run your battery pack down and then have little to no reserve and likely use the ICE more.
But being new to the Plug in Hybrid world I do not know. Curious to see what other's thoughts and opinions are.

For highway speeds use EV Later.  Highway speeds will discharge the battery in a hurry.  Air drag increases with the square of the velocity (speed).
