Stupid thieves will give up at trying to figure out how to open the doors on my Wind.
Despite the door handles' fiddliness and initially cumbersome nature to open, it actually might be a security feature. You're less likely to get carjacked since the door is more difficult to open from the outside. Thieves don't see any door handles to grab so they move on to the next car.

Just tested the charge cable theory. It works. The car is in zombie mode when the cable is attached and locked, even at 100% battery, it鈥檚 locked. An extra layer of complexity for a robber 馃槅. So we now have a lot for someone to go through to take the EV6 from your driveway. They have to find the keys, get into your house, bypass any alarms and noise generated while getting inside, dodge any baseball bats you have to hand, work out how to start the car using the brake pedal and start button, and work out why the car isn鈥檛 moving because the charging cable is locked, work out how to unlock it using Kia Connect or charger app... they could ask you to do it all while your home alarm is going off at knifepoint for sure, these things happen. Steering wheel lock as a deterrent as well?. Stealing an EV is no straightforward task.
