Same here, started the car accidentally, without pressing the brake pedal.

Yes, mistakenly pressed the accelerator instead of the brake, and the car started at moderately high revs. Then found pressing the brake pedal slowed the engine down even though stationary.

All the cars I've had previously, pressing the brake pedal has only been necessary when there's a push button start with keyless entry/go.
