What's this? Turn the key? I missed that part - please enlighten me.
Actually, for us Prius drivers I think the only learning curve may be that we have to reach down rather than forward for the shifter. Oh, and I know I'm going to have to think twice about where the parking brake is, but I don't need that often since I usually park on level ground.
Key, Button whatever, the only difference is when you start an EV there is no noise, that is the part that throws people for the first few seconds and then they are adjusted. The idea that Nissan worked hard to make the leaf like an ICE car is a complete joke. There is nothing to do other than explain the starting and that's it. There was no grand engineering effort to make it feel the same.
