Packard introduced the first power windows lifts in the 1940 180 series.   This was a hydro-electric system.  Chrysler introduced the all-electric operation on the 1951 Imperial.  The availability of power windows has increased, as small high-torque electric motors developed.  Currently, almost every auto manufacture in the world includes electric window lifts as standard equipment.
