I am a new owner, bought a 2014 model with only 8700km on the clock in Melbourne last week. Very happy with it, still learning all the little tricks that are part of these cars.

Welcome to the "world according to PHEV". There is tons of info on this forum and Facebook, and plenty of happy Aussie owners like us (we also have an iMiEV)

After 3 years owning our PHEV, a good friend of mine also purchased a second hand PHEV recently, and my wife (K) was chatting to his wife (R) as they returned to their PHEV. The story went like this -

(R) fumble fumble fumble in the handbag
(K) why don't you just press the button on the door?
(R) that's fine to get in the car, but then I still need to find the key to put in the slot to start the PHEV
(K) I don't know about the base model, but on the Aspire we don't have a slot (I didn't bother telling my wife about it)
(K) Why don't you just try it?
(R) Wow, it works!

There is a slot for the key.. but never used it.
However, the first week we had it, went to pick up some takeway... no parking so my wife drove off and parked two blocks away..... turned off the car waiting for me.
I called her 10 min later to come and get me.... guess who had the key in their pocket... guess who couldn't start the car ;-)

I havn't had that one, however I have had the wife leave her PHEV key in her handbag in the PHEV, and when I try to lock it with the 2nd PHEV key in my pocket, the PHEV says "NO". Took a while to figure out the problem.
Service departments leave the window ajar and drop the key onto a seat if they close before you can pick up the PHEV after servicing to get around the "can't lock with the key still inside" issue.

I also met a person who didn't realise the "loop" on the PHEV key is part of a hidden "old school" key, released by that slider on the back. I think you can lock a 2nd key in the PHEV using that traditional key, although I havn't tried it.
