Keyless Entry Auto Remote Car Key
The melee key is another innovation first found in the Chevrolet Corvette. In 1993, the available proximity keys were able to unlock the car when it was within range of the vehicle, but the actual key was needed to activate Vette. Mercedes-Benz also briefly had fashionable key fobs approximately the size and shape of a credit card. It could be left in your wallet or purse. This design was fragile and was only available on certain models in the 2003 model.
The latest development of the key is the ability to lock and unlock the car via the smartphone app. First introduced by Tesla, these apps can also track vehicle location, adjust air conditioning settings, and check the charging status of electric vehicles. However, you will need a backup key or fob in case your cell phone breaks down.
