Using mountain mode to build up a charge

While driving on the highway, I used mm to build up some battery charge. At this point I wanted to place the car in the hold mode to retain the charge for later use in the city. However, the hold mode was not available. Later, I realized that I had no charge left on the battery. Should I have just left the car in mm until I got in the city?

With our 2016 Volt we use hold mode more so than mountain mode. If we plan on going to Portland Oregon for the day I just drive on electric and than at 20 miles or so switch to hold mode. Once in the city area we can switch to normal, electric mode for all of our city driving.
