The only time our Model S "ran out of power" was when the main charger failed at the end of a long trip and the battery discharged down to about 4% SOC before Tesla could retrieve the car and repair it. They instructed me to remove the "first responder jumper" to preserve the remaining charge before the car went on the flatbed. The car sat at SOC < 5% for 2-3 days before the charger was replaced and normal charge was restored.
