Actually, you usually get a backup that you give when you get a service. For example, Tesla give you a plastic card that is similar to a credit card that you can tap against the car to unlock it.

Also, even if you take the keys away, a Tesla can be remote unlocked and started through the app as can more and more cars these days.
