Tesla’s steering yoke now optional for $250, after being mandatory then free

Tesla’s online configurator shows that the steering yoke, which was initially included as standard equipment on the 2021 Model S and Model X, is now available as an option for $250, as per a report from Electrek. In the past few months, Tesla has been offering a round steering wheel as an alternative to the yoke.

As the steering wheel became the standard option, the yoke was shifted to the list of available options. Initially, the yoke was offered at no additional cost, but now buyers will have to pay more for it.

Elon Musk has admitted that the yoke’s low-speed handling is not ideal and has stated that Tesla is working on a new steering system to improve it. This new system takes inspiration from the RZ450e model from Lexus.

Unfortunately, the release of this solution is still a few years away.
