Question First car to offer keyless entry?

Does anyone know for sure, which auto maker was the first to offer keyless entry on it's vehicles? Was is Mercedes or was it Lexus (LS perhaps?) or someone else? What year was keyless entry invented?

I thought Lexus didn't even exist before MB started having KG. But their first generation was from 1989 to 1991 according to wikipedia, perhaps someone would need to find a Mercedes model with KG before 1990, just in case.

Ford had the 5 button style keyless entry in the late eighties. The current Toyota/Lexus style keyless entry started with the 2G Prius in 2004. The first application on Lexus was on the 2G IS in 2006.
