I don't remember seeing this mentioned in the owner's manual, but I can tell you from personal experience, it is locked in. On one occasion, no idea why, it would not unlock and I had to find the manual release! It's only happened once, and I could not get it to repeat that fault. If you open the right-hand rear door, down near the bottom towards the rear of the frame, there's a plastic cover...pull that straight out, and there are two pull tabs: one for the door and a second one for the plug release. It takes a fair amount of pull to release the lock - much more than I'd have expected, but I did get it unlocked and make it to my appointment. There is an interlock that will prevent the car from being put into drive if the charging cable is still attached.
