Has anybody given any thought to (or seen in some of the demo vids as I haven't watched them all yet) how sophisticated the actual "removable" doors are?

That is.. are they going to have some sort of pigtails for an electrical connection and do they trust that to the customer to not continually destroy or damage? Which then begs the question.. are they key unlocked or remote, power windows or a handle, etc. Which then begs the question... are they removing some of the power functionality or door innards to save weight to make removing & storing "easy" for the masses? How will they be stored? Bags? A special box?

Plus, they've shown 3 types of doors... Standard, tube, tube with skin but a center cutout.

The point is - there's actually a lot more I'd personally like to know and learn about the doors that are removable in something more stout than a paper thin Jeep.

There's no metal key for the Bronco. Period.
Fob, proximity, remotely with phone app and B-pillar touch pad.
Your wallet dictates choices.

The hatches for the electrical connections are sweet.
The key fob has a removable metal key in it.

B-pillar touch pad hasn't been confirmed.

There are lots of pics showing all of this. There's an electrical disconnect on the edge of the doors that looks a lot easier to deal with than the one on Jeep where you need to remove a cover, then disconnect. There are storage bags for the doors and you only need to remove one bolt on each and lift them off. Power window switches and mirror controls are on the front of the center console.

Like a BMW key. A key FOB, but if you look close an actual key slides in/out of the FOB for power loss potential.
