    How to unlock your Tesla

    There are three ways to unlock and start your Tesla (depending on the model):

    1. Via the app
    2. With the key card
    3. With the key fob

    Do you need a key to drive?

    Once the car is powered on, you don’t need the key to drive it.

    But beware: although you can drive the car away from its key, you will be unable to power it back on after it powers off.

    So don’t get stranded and make sure you have a backup key fob or key card in case that there’s no phone reception.
