EV's operate most like any other car. If you are used to driving an automatic transmission you should not have difficulties. There are a few things to remember though.
You have to remove the charging plug from the car. Otherwise it will not be able to start. Removing the plug should be easy. If the plug locks on to the car, it is usually because the car doors are locked. Do not attempt to use force but unlock the car and gently remove the plug.
