Tesla will make the smartphone the main option for unlocking the car
It became known that the new Tesla cars will be shipped without alarm key fobs, instead
users are prompted to immediately use theirsmartphones or a special card. The Tesla keychain, made in the form of a miniature car model, can be purchased separately as an option for $175. According to Tesla, the vast majority of electric car users no longer use the key fob to unlock the car, but open it with a smartphone. This statistic swayed the company to the idea of making the key fob optional and excluding it from the mandatory bundle for standard delivery. Many manufacturers are adding the functionality of unlocking their cars using a smartphone as an option, and so far only Tesla has decided to stop equipping cars with key fobs.
