You can, with only light brake pedal force, such as what's needed when parking on a steep hill. Hard brake pressure shuts off the drive. Of course, in any event, this serves no point
Possibly interestingly, you *can* do this with a Volt. While stopped you can stand on the brake and accelerator at the same time (and the car hunches forward menacingly). It pulls 3.5kW and puts about 170 ft-lbs on the motor.
But in my OBD time trials so far it looks like it makes no difference in 0-45 speeds. I need to instrument APP and brake to get a good "zero" time, since my last runs just timed from first motion to 45.
I'm surprised the system doesn't kill with both pedals stomped. I haven't tried it at speed, and I don't think I want to...
