Tesla Model S: what are the benefits of the yoke?

Tesla Model S

With the release of the Tesla Model S refresh, the American company has messed up the cards, replacing the classic steering wheel with a joystick, a choice that has annoyed many Tesla fans, convinced that it would have been a failure. Months after the release of the yoke on the Model S, many Tesla customers say they have become accustomed to the different type of steering wheel, and find it very comfortable once they have developed the necessary muscle memory.

The reasons that led Tesla to making this choice are different, some of a practical nature, others related to driving safety, still others undoubtedly linked to the media aspect of a decision of this type. First of all, let's start from the practical aspect, as the joystick takes up less space - even visual - than a normal steering wheel, and therefore does not cover the car's instrumentation; the safety aspect is linked precisely to the position in which it is advisable to keep your hands to facilitate - if necessary - the opening of the airbags.

... and here is the modern version signed Tesla Many of us when we took the course to get the driving license were instructed to keep our hands on the so-called "ten and ten", in reference to the positions of the hands on the steering wheel as if this were the face of a clock: according to the American association that deals with road safety, the NHTSA, the most correct position would instead be at "nine and a quarter", therefore exactly to the right and left of a round steering wheel , or in the natural position of use on a joystick.

Tesla recalls more than 817,000 cars over faulty seat belt chimes

Tesla is once again grappling with large-scale software quality issues. The Associated Press reports Tesla has issued a recall for 817,143 cars over a flaw in seat belt chime functionality. All Model 3 and Model Y cars, as well as 2021 and newer Model S and Model X cars, have a 'software error' that prevents the chime from sounding on startup if the chime was interrupted and the seat belt wasn't fastened. You could run into the problem just by closing the door just after leaving the vehicle, according to the recall notice.

The automaker plans to fix the seat belt chime bug by releasing an over-the-air update sometime in early February. There are no reports of injuries, and the visual seat belt alert still appears properly. South Korean testers first discovered the problem on January 6th, and Tesla decided a recall was necessary on January 25th following an investigation.

While this recall is relatively minor, its timing couldn't be much worse for Tesla. It comes just a few days after a recall for a Full Self Driving bug, and while the NHTSA is investigating a string of incidents where cars using Autopilot crashed into emergency vehicles. A driver is facing felony charges for an Autopilot-related crash, too. That's on top of recalls for physical problems like camera, trunk and suspension defects. Tesla doesn't have a stellar reputation for quality at the moment, and the seat belt chime fault only reinforces that image.
