Reading the article (I know..), this is a very odd shifter lever. It isn't a manual gear shift, it is P R N D/S (the newfangled automatic manual selection transmission), but it always returns to center, it doesn't stay at the park position. Also, if they car isn't in park, it doesn't shut off the engine, which is an odd design choice as well. I am not entirely sure how you actually put it in park, it sounds like you hold the button and push it all the way forward, but that seems like it would just work and not be weird enough to put people off. I'm really not sure what is going on here.
