When the Model S Plaid was released in 2021, Tesla CEO Elon Musk stated on Twitter that the standard circular steering wheel will not be provided for the new Tesla Model S and Model X. You can either try to fit the Yoke steering wheel, or get a third-party modification.
However, now Tesla is officially going to hit their boss again, recently Tesla announced the new Model S and Model X China market price, some users found that Tesla China even provide users with Yoke steering wheel and standard steering wheel two options, and both are free. You should know that all new Model S and Model X delivered overseas are only available with Yoke steering wheel.
Not only that, Tesla has also launched a round steering wheel retrofit service for the new Model S and Model X on its overseas website so that owners of previous cars can also use the round steering wheel. The price of the retrofit is $700 (about 4795 CNY), including installation costs.
Many owners really can not adapt to Tesla’s Yoke steering wheel, some owners say, in a large rapid rotation, this shaped steering wheel is easy for the driver can not grasp the hand change point unless you can master the one-handed control, but this operation also greatly increases the safety risks. Although the face of Elon Musk, but Tesla launched a round steering wheel modification service for users is also a kind of rescue measures it.
