Hi the car will always start after a few seconds to warm the engine up, why not put it into EV if you just want to reverse out.

Always moves off in electric then engine fires up after afew feet and not straight away. Ev mode works fine if needed. Just wanted to make sure it is fine... It only happens when been standing for a while...

Same has happened on both my Gen 2 & Gen 3 Prius cars. Do not worry about it it is fine.

When the engine is cold, it is designed to warm up for anti-pollution reasons. I think it is a 10-second delay, maybe to give you time to make a request for EV-mode from the computer? It should be noted that the computer may say "No", for example if the HV Battery is too cold, insufficient SoC (State of Charge) - it should be covered in the Owners Manual.
