For driving in snow at night. They're not needed 99% of the time, but they're a total lifesaver in that other 1%. (Former Volvo 240DL/V70/V40 owner here, and they're seriously some of the best cars for snow, besides the Subaru Outback/Legacy AWD wagons.

I'll never understand why people would own rwd cars in snowy/icy areas. AWD or nothing.

Yep, I think all Swedish cars from the late 70s through to fairly recently had them. A lot of German cars too and probably others. With the current narrow lights, they don't seem to be needed.

My Range Rover had headlight wipers. It's not that uncommon.

As far as I know, in Spain, all cars with Xenon headlights were or are required to include wipers
