There's a lock on the passenger door only (probably the driver's door on left-hand drive models.) If you bend down and look at the handle from below, you should be able to see a slot where the key goes. Insert the key in the slot and (carefully - don't damage the paintwork) prize the cap away. This will expose the actual lock, which unlocks with the key in the usual manner.

In theory, you should never need the key unless you get a flat battery. The key won't start the engine, but for it not to work either the transponder chip or the chip reader must fail. This is equally possible on a car with a conventional ignition key with a built-in transponder immobiliser.
