Sorry to read about this issue you are having LBH. Haven't come across this previously. From what you have posted, the issue appears to be with the ICE and the car not trusting itself to transition from EV to ICE due to the issue. The engine warning light would seem to support this.
Hope you get an early appointment with the dealer. While this will be fixed under warranty, it is disappointing in a new car.

Thanks for the update LBH. Great that they didn't think it was a big issue and appear to have resolved it.
I was thinking about your post afterwards and that it might have been a low charge on the 12v battery. That can cause issues with transitioning in between EV and ICE in PHEVs of different makes and models.
Hopefully what they have done resolves the issue. Funnily, the issues I have seen/read on PHEVs appear on the face of it to be big and complicated issues but are usually resolved by simple or straightforward fixes.
