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.

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.
