Do you want a round steering wheel in your new Tesla Model S or Model X? Then you’re out of luck!

According to Elon Musk, the ‘yoke’ – as Tesla calls the half wheel – is the only option. Of course, he did not announce this via an official communiqué, such as a press release or an online brochure, but on Twitter. Musk responded to a question from a follower. “Will there be an option for a normal steering wheel too?” he wrote, to which Musk simply replied, “No.”

Elon Musk: ‘Half steering wheel Tesla Model S and Model X has advantages’

The Tesla boss believes that the half steering wheel has important advantages. You can see the instrument cluster better, he said. Although we have never had the problem with a round steering wheel that the view of the meters is blocked. And if that is an issue, you can always use a head-up display. But Tesla doesn’t…

On a circuit you don’t have to take over, on the road you do

Whatever Musk claims, in a regular car a round steering wheel is the only logical solution. You can easily transfer and you never have to worry about where to place your hands. It is no problem that a racing car has a half steering wheel. A driver never needs to turn his hands on the track more than 90 degrees.

No steer-by-wire with variable steering transmission

Tesla could have solved the problem by using a steer-by-wiresystem, which continuously adjusts the steering ratio so that you never have to take over. Tesla is working on it, but says it will take years to implement. The new Model S and Model X have a normal transmission. And so you’re in corners with your arms tangled.
