Electric only driving and car chirp

I didn't come across this yet when glancing at the manual, but to drive Electric only, is there a button I need to push? Since my wife will be using the van, her work is only 5-6 miles away. So just wanted to see if there was something she needed to choose.

Also, what does the lock/unlock chirp sound like on the car? Is it like Sienna vans with a soft chirp arm and double chirp off? Or is it like the older T&C vans with the obnoxious horn honk?

There is nothing you need to do to drive in electric mode. If the battery has sufficient charge, you will be in electric mode. The gas engine will automatically (and seamlessly) kick in when and if it needs to. There is no manual control of this.

There is no chirp for the locks. You can set it to briefly sound the horn when you lock it or you can have it flash the lights with no noise. I have mine set to make no sound when I lock it, but if I hit the lock button a second time it will honk the horn. I like this option because it doesn't make noise most of the time, but if I want to confirm that it really locked, I can hit the button twice and hear the horn to confirm. I like this a lot better than the Sienna's chirp.
