It follows the pattern of an automatic transmission, but doesn't operate like one since the lever does not stay in a particular position for each mode. It would make more sense to me if forward was for moving forward and backward was for moving backward. Park should probably moving to the left or right, not pushing a button. Even better, get rid of it and put this function on the steering wheel. It's a waste of space where it is.
It is exactly like the Prius and lets face it, but many EV owners are current or ex-Prii owners too. It is very familiar. I really like the shifter in all my Prii and the Leaf being the same is just icing on the cake.
