And there's the explanation ! I tried to pull away without releasing the EPB as I normally would and the car wouldn't move.
Just tried it again and released the EPB manually and the car moves without the seat belt plugged in.
I have the latest software update, so it's nothing to do with that - mystery solved. :D
That's a very useful tip. Its a pity we can't give it more prominence on the forum somehow.
On the forum I use for my hobby it's possible for the mods to make certain threads into a sticky that are considered to have long term relevance.
I don't know if that can be done on this forum, maybe AlanH will know.
I haven't found anything on this forum to make a sticky. Sorry.

[If I find one, I'll try it here]

I own a 2022 Ultimate Hybrid with Tech Pack - in Red (best colour).
Also have two motorcycles. Honda CB1300 and Honda CBF1000 (also red, of course).

Last night I dropped a passenger off with and they tried retrieving their bag out of the boot. Even though the doors were unlocked, the boot refused to open until I shut the engine off. Thought it was just being them being stupid so got out, tried, failed, played with the door locky switch thing, same deal, switched engine off, boot could then be opened...

I could understand if you were in Drive mode or had a gear selected in a manual drive vehicle as you would not want to accidentally press the release whilst hurtling down a road at warp factor 3.
However, in Park/Neutral surely the system should disengage any safety mode.
I’m still awaiting my Tucson but in my current Peugeot 3008 the electric tailgate opens when stationary, engine On/Off.

Indeed @Beards. You have to be in Park and the EPB on first. You then have a number of opening options. Page 5-41 UK manual for reference.

This is a manual car and I was out of the car trying to open it with the engine running. epb on and in neutral. Had to switch it off to open the boot Will consult manual later.

Apologies @daibill. My user manual page number is for HEV and PHEV, so may not be the same page in your book.

Why is there a P button as well as an EPB button?

Same with my HEV model.

P locks the transmission (gearbox). The EPB applies the brakes.
