Hello,

I went to my dealer to do a test drive of the Ioniq EV.
While I was driving I was thinking about the button for the shifter (D, P, R, N).

What will happen if while driving, I put something on top of the buttons and there is enough pressure to push the parking button or reverse button??

I don't know if someone thy it but I'm curious to know how the car will react!!!

In a standard car, to be able to pass from Drive to Park, you need to push a button and at the same time move the shifter. Not in the IONIQ!!

Put simply, the car will not let you do it. Drive-by-wire means the car has it's own brain, that keeps the human brain in check!
For example, the reverse button only becomes active when the car is stopped.

Good to know! is it the same thing for the parking and the neutral?

Thanks for the quick reply

Not sure how it would work on the BEV, as is there something mechanical that disconnects the motor from the drive train? Would think its possible to go from drive or reverse to neutral without stopping

In autos/dsg boxes you should always be able to get the car in to neutral without doing anything regarding pedals, but not necessarily get back in to drive without stopping if speed low.

Isn't it so that you will always have to push the brake pedal and come to a halt before you can change anything on the shifter?

You should always be able to get in to neutral whilst moving, just not out of it. My Golf let's you get out of neutral back in to drive as long as engine speed and road speed are close enough.

No - I can shift from reverse to park without braking, and even if the car is rolling slightly. It makes parking a little more fluid, which I appreciate

The only thing you need to remember is before shifting from reverse or drive to P bring the car to a full stop. Because of the double clutch the transmission wil no be damaged shifting at speeds < 1km but its not recommended.
