Tesla Debuts Round Steering Wheel for Model S/X, Plus Retrofit Option
Tesla’s decision to reinvent the wheel by putting a steering yoke in its 2021 Model S and Model X electric vehicles (EVs) was a controversial one, but it certainly got people talking.
For those who simply can’t get on board with a steering yoke, though, Tesla is now offering a round steering wheel option for new Model S/X orders — reports Tesla North.
When configuring a Model S or Model X in Tesla’s vehicle configurator, customers will now be able to choose between a steering wheel and a yoke steering.
If you’ve already purchased a Model S/X with a steering yoke and would rather have a wheel, Tesla’s got you covered as well. The company has launched a Model S/X Steering Wheel Retrofit, available for $960 CAD ($700 USD) starting in May 2023.
“Travel in luxury. Enjoy the warmth of a heated wheel and the touch of premium vegan leather in a traditional form factor. No stalks or shifters,” reads Tesla’s product description for the retrofit.
The company went on to note that this retrofit is only available for existing Model S and Model X vehicles with a Yoke Steering Wheel. Furthermore, the $960 price includes installation by Tesla.
