    I don't believe you until there's video of you in the trunk trying it out!

    I assume this is an electronic rather than mechanical release, so I wonder how well it would work with the battery disconnected.

    Whats next, power moving steering wheel? oh yeah those exist... How about automatic parking brakes? oh yeah those too... seat position memory, check. Damn, overkill car tech is way over my head...

    @greenpony: I bet it's still mechanical, although the light would not work with no battery. They just prettied it up.
