I recently had to stop on an upward incline, and somehow accidentally shifted my Model S into reverse. (Not sure how I did that, maybe I hit the lever while trying to adjust the vent behind it.) In any event, when I depressed the accelerator pedal to start upward again, I shot backward (downhill) very rapidly. I immediately hit the brake, but it was very fortunate no one was behind me.
I notice that my Prius sounds an audio warning tone inside the vehicle anytime the shifter is set to reverse. I'd sure like to have that feature on my Tesla! Perhaps it could be an option on the control panel screen.
