I haven't driven my Niro for a week. First thing out of the driveway was check to see that I wasn't crazy with what I reported in this thread. Yup, clearly the motor is placing a load on the drivetrain at a stop and in gear. Toggled in and out of neutral, attitude changed with each shift and the front tires tried to dig in or relax respectively.
Sorry, if this happens with mine, it happens with all Niros (and Ioniqs). Can't be a one off. I did a search for the post I quoted about 200 watt load, couldn't find it. But it certainly should be in the ballpark just picturing what a 50 watt load would do in creep mode. So creep on level road is capable of 6 mph (or 10 kph). I'll leave the watt calculation to others, but again, seems about right if the creep load is constant and not changed at a stop.
