Brake when stationary

Updated 5/12/2021

Brake when stationary

Brake when stationary (Hold) means that the driver can release the brake pedal while maintaining braking when the car has stopped at traffic lights, for example.

Activating brake when stationary (Hold)

The function is activated automatically when stationary if gear position D or R is selected and

  • Regenerative braking is activated
  • the car is at risk of starting to roll in the selected direction of travel.

Deactivating brake when stationary (Hold)

The function is released when the driver drives off with a gear selected and the accelerator pedal depressed.


Braking when stationary is also deactivated when the driver changes to neutral position.

The parking brake is activated automatically

  • if the driver unbuckles the seatbelt and/or opens the driver's door.
  • if the function has been active for more than 10 minutes
