To those of you in Europe (and elsewhere in the world) lucky enough to have been driving your new EV6,

I have a First Edition reservation here in the US and I'm somewhat worried about the lack of a rear window wiper on the EV6. Have you wished you had one? I own two vehicles and both have rear wipers and sure I don't use the wiper every time it rains but there have been times that I was very happy I had it.

Cheers!

If it's actively raining and you are moving, it seems to clear just fine without a wiper. You still see beads of rain on the glass but it's fine. I was out for a short drive this morning (15 mins, average speed 60-80km/h) and the window had been wet from morning mist, but it was no longer raining. By the time I got back it was still wet but a little clearer. I could still see cars behind me just fine.

Actually, I've not needed it at all as yet. I thought I would but I haven't. Visibility at the back is not great to be honest but the window has been clear and dirt has not built up.

I’m not worried, my Audi A5 had no rear wiper and I never had a problem.

Bjorn Nylands review at the 8 min mark shows the rear window after a long and very dirty drive completely clear. His comment is muck on the charging door is more of a problem.

Thanks for all your perspectives! That video is amazing - the "schmutz" seems almost totally blocked by the rear light spoiler!

As belt and braces I am aiming to coat the rear glass in rainex or similar (worked well on the non wipered rear screen of my TVR Cerbera :devilish:)
