    I can't see the steering wheel serving a practical purpose unless driven on a racetrack. It's not good for turning corners, especially in narrow roads. Hopefully they offer the option for a rounded one.

    As if someone would use this car as a robotaxi. Think of the worst things you have done on the internet because nobody is watching you and now apply it to a car that doesn't have anybody watching you. Just watch some Uber and Lyft driver videos on SEblacks (Dustin Is Driving) to see the horrible things people get up to when someone IS watching them and now think what would happen if someone wasn't there. A drunk woman will happily piss in the back seat of your lovely new Tesla and it will soak into your seats and there is nobody watching them to kick them out, especially on the back seat of a 7 seater. Someone wants to shoot up or smoke a joint in the backseat of your Tesla? There aren’t any smoke detectors or wet seat detectors in Teslas so there is nothing to stop people doing whatever they want and nobody is watching the single internal camera all the time. Think of the disgusting things you have seen people do at the supermarket or on the street and then imagine that same person riding in your car. Look at the rental bikes and scooters in cities and what happens to them. A small percentage of people will wreck the whole business model and they inevitably go broke. Just putting a sticker over a couple of the cameras will stop the self driving from working, how do you stop that? What about the out of work taxi drivers who would actively want to damage the Tesla taxis. Stickers covering the internal and external cameras would stop the vehicle from driving anywhere and how do you stop that happening? You can't ban someone that puts stickers over the external cameras. If you don't allow your taxi to go into the bad neighborhoods because of all the bad people that want to have some fun in a driverless taxi then expect a class action lawsuit. Look at the rental bikes and scooters in the city, a small percentage of people take pleasure in wrecking them for everyone and then they go out of business. Great in theory but when you add the lack of adult supervision for drunk or bad people then it will fail.

    Has anyone realized that tesla is manufacturing cars more like smart phones than automobiles. Full of software, and applications but can't be serviced, taken offline or individually modified. So when your tesla does it's job after certain miles just get the updated version. Im glad and also am sad that the artistry of cars is dwindling. Hypermodern isn't my favorite aesthetic.

  • Dylan Lewis
    Dylan Lewis12 dagar sedan

    This is a mixed bag. The yoke steering wheel is just a marketing gimmick that only belongs in a purpose-built race car, as going past 90 degrees of steering input is uncommon on a track. The touchscreen shifting is complete madness. If you have to look at the control to use it, it's worse than a physical switch or shifter. I never have to look at the shifter in my car to know if I made the intended selection. All that being said, Tesla is still the best offering right now if you intend to replace your combustion engine car entirely. However, I'm concerned that they are starting bad trends in the industry that will only make sense when cars reach full automation. Using a touchscreen for everything is fine when you aren't responsible for piloting a 2-ton rolling missile. This is likely a cost-cutting strategy for Tesla. Eliminating physical buttons significantly reduces that part-count and overall cost in manufacturing, but it's been disguised as innovation. Otherwise the car is pretty cool. I'd like to drive one.

    Kind of worried about accidental touches when you're touching the screen or bottom of the charging pad while driving and accidentally changing the gears. Any info on that? Maybe while the car is in motion it won't let you change gears.

    The CyberTruck is supposed to be able to pull a big 14000# trailer. Most vehicles built to tow such trailers have adjustable side mirrors so you can actually see past your trailer. On others you add mirror extenders. How am I going to see past my trailer with the cameras on the side of the truck? Where would I even hook extenders since there is no physical mirror to clip them on?

    Nice fast car.....$130K to be quick? Well, can't argue with that but tires will get pricey and I could care less after a few launches that I still don't have a travel vehicle for family vacations and when the highway is shut down for a bad accident in the heat of summer or sub-zero winter temps....how long will that battery last? No thanks. My gripe......how in the EFF....did they get that steering wheel through D.O.T. and NHTSA? Incredibly unsafe for most drivers looking to get out of a situation to find their hands trying to find a wheel that has 40% of the wheel missing. The Tesla is deemed very safe, however this is the WORST design for safety in mind.

    Why did they remove the stocks from the steering column? Why did they replace the steering wheel with a steering yoke? When the FSD is engaged in the future, what will happen to the steering column and yoke? Auto-Retraction. In the event of a manual takeover due to FSD failure, the yoke will reappear for the driver. It has been mentioned, the Model 3 & Model Y may also be getting the steering yoke in the near future. This is only my opinion.

  • Radu Ungureanu
    Radu Ungureanu19 dagar sedan

    Not sure about the yoke. It looks out of place in a large luxury sedan. If it was on the new Roadster, sure it would make a lot of sense. Also, I don't know how easy it can be to take sharp turns or do u-turns with it. I can't argue the button functionality on it though. Would be nice to have it as an optional so the more adventurous drivers can opt for it if they want.

    9:32 "This shifting is just as easy as regular stock" And then proceeds with "missing" the input for reverse two times in a row lmao. Yup, that's gonna happen a lot! Man, I really liked Teslas when they started, but nowadays they are literally changing stuff just to be different even though it makes zero sense for end-user and it makes the car harder to use. The steering wheel allows for one and only one way of holding it (like a dork), touchscreen wipers, no way to flash the lights except for quickly turning the lights on and of with button presses, blinkers position that is just horrible, and touchscreen gear leaver are just a couple of things that makes this care LESS user friendly than any other car. Its just changes for the sake of changes. But hey, it's not like I will ever be able to buy it...

    All that wild 0 to 60 means is more accidents at intersections. So many cars becoming quick off the line is getting scary. A lot cars try to beat the light and won't be able to make it. The timing of lights will have to be adjusted or "would you like some steak sauce with that T-Bone sir?"
