Tesla: the Yoke steering wheel is back as a paid option

Formerly offered as standard on the Tesla Model X and Model S, the Yoke steering wheel is now a paid option for 1,000 euros.

Tesla recently announced a new option for its Model S and Model X: customers will now have the choice between the traditional steering wheel and the controversial Yoke. However, this new possibility comes at a price, and it is far from modest.

In 2021, Tesla sparked strong reactions by introducing the Yoke as a standard steering wheel for its two high-end models. Drivers and aficionados of the brand found themselves with only one option in the catalog, the Yoke, a steering wheel with an unusual rectangular shape and a rather complicated grip.

Standard, then free option, then paid option

However, in response to customer criticism and preferences, Tesla eventually changed course and made the round steering wheel the new default option, allowing customers to choose the Yoke as a free option.

In the spring, Tesla also responded to the complaints of dissatisfied drivers in the United States by offering them the possibility of replacing the Yoke with the traditional steering wheel for an additional $750. Subsequently, the company included the Yoke as a standalone option, available for $250.

An option now too expensive?

As is often the case with Tesla, there has been change again. While Yoke remains available, Tesla is now asking for an additional $1,000 for this option, or 1,000 euros with us. The traditional steering wheel, for its part, remains the default option and does not generate any additional costs for customers.

Tesla also announced plans to develop a version combining both solutions. In this configuration, the Yoke would still be available, but it would be integrated into a more conventional steering wheel, thus abandoning its rectangular shape. This development should also allow Tesla to improve the quality of its product, which was criticized during its initial launch.
