I had an electric garden tractor in 1973 by the way. Way better than gasoline fueled yard equipment even made today. It cost twice as much as a gas tractor of the day. Even in the gas-crisis of the early 1970's it didn't sell well because of the price. There were no Government market tax credit offsets to try and create market change.
A manual transmission can be set to "comfort", "sport", and "track" modes simply by the technique and speed at which you shift it; it doesn't need "modes", modes are for manumatics that try to behave like a real 3-pedal manual transmission. If you can money-shift it, it's a manual transmission.
