Locking and unlocking with the detachable key blade

The removable key blade can be used to unlock the car from the outside – if there is no power to your car or the key battery is discharged, for example.


The alarm is triggered when the car is unlocked with the key blade.

When the door is unlocked using the key blade and is then opened, the alarm is triggered.


The doors have a lock switch at the end which must be depressed using the key blade – these are then mechanically locked/blocked to prevent them being opened from outside.

The doors can still be opened from the inside.

  • A door's lock reset only locks that particular door - not all doors simultaneously.
  • A manually locked rear door with child lock activated cannot be opened from inside or outside. The door can be unlocked with the key's buttons, central locking button, or the Polestar app.
