Tesla Model 3 and Y owners can also get a Yoke steering wheel
The awkward ergonomics don't seem to bother them
Tesla fans seem to like anything out of the ordinary. Despite the obvious ergonomic shortcomings of the Yoke steering wheel on the facelifted Model S and Model X, Model 3 and Model Y owners also want the same feature on their vehicles.
Apart from the fact that it looks undeniably futuristic, the Yoke steering wheel allows a clear view on the instrument cluster, which was previously partially obstructed by the rim of the traditional steering wheel. This interest becomes very limited on the Model 3 and Model Y since these two models only have a central screen as an instrument panel.
The main thing is the wow effect and this copy of the Yoke steering wheel is very convincing in that respect. Made in China by Hansshow, the product faithfully imitates the official model with perfectly respected shapes and proportions. The choice of materials seems even superior with Alcantara and fake carbon inserts on the spokes.
However, the very specific atmosphere brought by this steering wheel and the quite noticeable upgrade cost between $1,099 and $1,259 depending on the materials chosen. On top of that, you'll have to deal with some very questionable ergonomics that will require you to change your habits, at the risk of being extremely disappointed.
