It stands for Winter mode.

Mode W will only function if the gear selector is in the (D)rive position.
Press the button at the base of the gear selector to engage/disengage this driving mode.
An LED in the button will light up to indicate that W is engaged and this will also be displayed in the instrument panel.
This mode may be selected for starting/moving off on slippery roads.
