I mean move a bit more literally, like moving it out of the driveway so I can get another car out. I think Hondas always accelerate from a stop with the ICE running? I did drive a HCH, I don't remember what it did.

If the IONIQ is like that, it's no deal for me personally, although if it has a tow rating that might make the decision difficult, no towing (legally) is a big draw back to the usefulness of the Prius for me.
