Well, things have changed since I posted this mini rant.
Two weeks ago I picked up a 2013 Chevy Volt.
We had been out looking at the Audi A3 e-tron for her, I drove a Nissan Leaf just to do it, and then went back to that dealer a couple days later to drive, and then buy, the used Volt.
Yeah... the Volt has 'creep'. Its not my favorite thing in the world. My daily driver cars for the last 15 years have been manual transmissions. Its just habit to sit in neutral and relax at a stoplight. Even our ProMaster van has an automated manual transmission, it holds the clutch in while at a stop until you touch the throttle.
What I have not liked about most automatic cars is the creep often requires significant effort on the brake pedal. With the Volt, it is much softer. The motive force from a stop seems quite less than a gasser with an automatic.
Definitely much easier than holding the brakes on my old '71 Dodge station wagon, 318 V8 with three speed auto, and four wheel drum brakes. On that car I joke there's a reason the brake pedal is 8" wide, so you can get two feet on it, cuz you'll need them both.
So while I still would like to have no creep, I quickly got used to driving an EV that does have some creep.
