I really find it strange that in a 2012/2013 car there is no hill-hold feature standart. Does anybody know how the braking system of the Model S works? Is the braking pedal mechanical connected to device (magnetic or hydraulic) that activates and releases the brakes or is the pedal just connected to a sensor that sends an electrical signal to the braking device? In the latter case it should not be difficult to program a delay of 2-3 seconds between the release of the brake pedal and the release of the brake and should not take long to develop and implement.
