  • window roll-down works everywhere
  • Window roll-up works everywhere but the USA (LAME)
  • I know other manufacturers that follow this same scheme (remote up/down, but down-only in the USA) (eg BMW)
  • Windows with one-touch roll-up have pinch protection. That is, fronts only on the 22 EV6 (all 4 on 23)
  • Ergo, remote roll-up is already pinch-protected anyway.

The whole thing is dumb and inconsistent and I wish to high heaven they had just implemented 4x auto up-down switches with remote roll-up-down. What the 22 has is obnoxious, confusing, half-assed cost cutting, and leaves me terrified I’m going to accidentally hurt my dog on top of it all.

This is from the EV6 manual:

Remote window closing/opening (if equipped)
Operation
  • 僅 Press and hold the door lock button on the smart key to close the win- dows. The windows will move up as long as the button is pressed.
  • 僅 Press and hold the door unlock button on the smart key to open the win- dows. The windows will move down as long as the button is pressed.
  • 僅 Remote window operation can be activated or deactivated through the infotainment system menu.
    WARNING
  • 僅 Do not install any accessories in the area of windows. It may impact jam protection.
  • 僅 Always check for obstructions before raising any window to avoid injuries or vehicle damage. If an object less than 4 mm (0.16 inches) in diameter is caught between the window glass and the upper window channel, the auto- matic reverse window may not detect the resistance and will not stop and reverse direction.
  • 僅 The automatic reverse feature is not activated while resetting power win- dow system. Make sure body parts or other objects are safely out of the way before closing the windows to avoid injuries or vehicle damage.
  • 僅 NEVER leave the keys in your vehicle with unsupervised children, when the vehicle is running.

Just like the small Frunk in the US on rear drive cars.
