I had to deal with this kind of problems, a lot.

It could be a user error like leaving the car unlocked with some accessory running, you know, genuine power draw.

Or, it could be a problem with the car's battery management. I had a lot of issues with my 2013 (battery, battery charging module, ECU) and zero problems wuth my 2017. Even in the really cold weather I have not seen once the battery drain warning. So as I said, unless you did something to drain the battery, it's likely the car's fault.

There's always some accessories running. You might think that the car is 'off', but it's never totally off. Between that and the greatly decreased ability of a battery to hold charge in very cold weather a battery maintainer should not be considered an optional device, it should be considered mandatory.

Got the same warning this morning after the car sat for 3 days in near zero temps. Drove it for about 40 minutes with no accessories on. The warning went away.
