You can drive it, but let out the heat if parked in the sun. If the sun has been bearing down on the dash the air coming from the vents will be scorching, so run the fans with the windows open for a minute or two before starting the engine.
Once driving, close the windows and use A/C. Be generous with the cold. The battery gets vented with cabin air, so if you're comfortable so is the hybrid battery.
I park in the shade when it is hot (in tropical Holland
) and use a sunscreen if I can't get shade. I do have a set of black net shades for the rear sides and back window but did not get around mounting them yet, not that big an issue here.
