I can attempt too, what is your specific question?
So the group is trying to understand if Auto Hold is available. It seems to be on the European versions, but perhaps not on the demo units in the US at the moment. Why would they remove such a simple feature, if it has been? It is only software at that point. WE DEMAND ANSWERS!!!!! ;)

Gotcha, I know the term "Hill Hold" if that is what you are referring too. The Golf R and GTi equipped that way. But I have found with my e-Golf it is simply putting on my "emergency brake" when I feel any lurching at a stop/intersection, it simply unlocks itself when you press the accelerator. on my FE it will be known as the "Play" peddle. Reviewing the window sticker of the DEMO, I do not see it listed in the Safety Section

Hill hold is a little different. Hill hold keeps the car from rolling backwards when stopped on a hill (although Auto Hold does the replace Hill Hold). Here is the description of Auto Hold from the European manual:

Keeping the vehicle stationary with the Auto Hold function:
— Make sure that the Auto Hold function is switched on.
— Bring the vehicle to a standstill using the brake.
— The indicator lamp in the instrument cluster lights up green when the Auto Hold function is active.
— The vehicle will be kept stationary. You can release the brake.
— The hold function stops if the vehicle is driven off or if the prerequisites for the Auto Hold function are not met.

Sounds like JVes may have identified a workaround in case there is no AutoHold: press the Park button when you want to kill the creep. When you accelerate away, the Park function Is automatically lifted. (Yes, I realize this is a bandaid because it’s not automatic; you have to manually engage Park.)

That will not work on the ID.4 as the parking brake is the same button as Park. Once you activate it, the car will not longer be in Drive. (Of course, you can always put it back into Drive when ready to drive away but the whole process defeats the convenience of Auto Hold.)
