That’s a feature where you can use your phone to unlock and start your car.

Basically if your phone dies, it still has enough juice to unlock and start your car for up to 5 hours.

Interesting. Sounds like it's inspired by the Apple Watch's Power Reserve mode, which has been around since the original Apple Watch and watchOS 1.0. (Basically, when the watch shuts off because the battery has run down, it can still tell time for something like a couple of days.)
