As per comments above, you don't get a choice in Teslas. Initially I put mine (Model S) in Park at lights - but then the door handles popped out and the interior lights came on. I didn't find a satisfactory combination of settings to allow use of Park at lights so I gave up and now just use the brake hold. So on behalf of Tesla drivers, apologies for the brake lights, but we're not being lazy!.

There is a safety aspect to this - the brake lights act as a warning, and can also indicate whether a car is really parked or just waiting at lights - there are a few streets near me, especially one-way side streets, where it's difficult to tell if a car is waiting or just inconsiderately parked (and didn't bother putting on the "soz, I'll be back in a bit" hazard lights).
