Wonder how we would get out of a locked car if they had electronic controls and door locks. Use the obsolete Blackberry phone to break the window.
Go to a Chevrolet dealer and see how this is done with the Corvettes. You have a key hidden in the key fob that can be used to open the trunk. In the trunk is a hidden pull handle that will open the drivers door. The hood is also a mechanical pull so in a few minutes you can get to the battery.
