    These are some of the worst cars you can buy for the environment. If you don't believe me, watch Planet of the Humans to get some idea for starters. And to add insult to injury, Tesla makes the vast majority of its profit, not by selling cars, but by selling energy credits to GM and Ford and other traditional auto-makers, so those companies can bypass meeting regulations. What an awful company to support.

    These cars are the definition of hyper overengineered. That steering wheel is for the birds. like what the fuck? Really? A lot of the stuff they do in these cars for the interior doesn't make any of it better, just cooky different. Am I crazy to not want to have to access EVERYTHING about the car on a touch screen? I want the left stock for turn signals, I'm ok with buttons for radio. I actually want a physical gear shift for Drive and Reverse. I can't get over that Cessna steering wheel. There's zero casual way to hold that. Big fat zero.

God killed Jesus Christ for you in your place and that’s mean if you believe in Jesus Christ and you repent,you will be saved from the furry of God. To repent is mean to want to live how God wants and to pray at Him for forgiveness and to say:Lord..please forgive me for all my sins i had did against you and please,change me,i dont want live in sins anymore,please change me and make me your children,please have mercy on me..

I just saw a video of a young man who was driving one of these cars, and was being stopped by a police officer for a presumed traffic infraction. The policeman told the young man that "he was not supposed to have a computer screen in his car, it was illegal" so the young man had to tell him that that was part of the car that operates the car. Policeman was just baffled.

    Saw you recently in the new E-Merc (EQS) and it would have been interesting to get some spontaneous thoughts about the differences and how they might please the customers, especially the interior, the steering wheel and lack of drive modes. The design of the Tesla is somewhat outdated after 10 years, I hoped for a deeper refresh. And who needs 1000+ HP for 55 miles/h?

    Honestly, most people drive incorrectly. This wheel forces you to never remove at least one hand from the wheel and whichever hand you leave on the wheel gives you a point of reference for getting it back to center. When you feed a round wheel from one hand to the other while turning this is what causes a lot of accidents, fishtailing and over-corrections as you cant find center when trying to go back quickly. It might seem odd at first but keep both hands at 9 and 3 while turning, race car drivers do this for a reason.

    I see that this video is from January of 2021. It is now April 21, 2021. As of right now Tesla is putting the finishing touches on these refreshes. I, like most Tesla fans, am waiting to see these cars being driven by the people who have bought them. I'm pretty sure that SEtoos will light up with owners showing what the Model S or X is all about. Until then the best we can do is make educated guesses as to how the finished product will look and drive. Of course, the refreshed yoke steering wheel is what folks are most curious about. I have seen many videos that discuss and demonstrate steer by wire. Basically it lowers the steering ratio. That is to say that what normally takes a full turn of the steering wheel would take a quarter turn with steer by wire. With this type of steering the yoke steering wheel makes more sense. For more info search SEtoos for Steer By Wire.

    I think Tesla is doing immeasurable good with its revolution of the electric car industry, but I fear that they push for change where it isn't necessary. I imagine Elon read, "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," laughed, and made his company motto "if it ain't new, redesign it." I remember in 2014 thinking the design of the center console (specifically the fact that it didn't extend to the armrest) was a dumb change for change's sake because it needlessly sacrificed an area for storage of everyday items like phones and cups for the sake of "clean minimalism". Now the center console extends to the armrest like every other car ever made and they are better for it. However, now Telsa has its sights set on the stalks and is pushing for the same "innovation" where none is really needed. Sure, placing more of the controls on the wheel itself a la F1 is interesting, but removing the gear selector is downright ridiculous. It will inevitably be available on the touchscreen, but that cannot reasonably replace a physical mechanism with greater feedback and control. Tesla (or maybe just Elon) needs to learn that "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," doesn't mean an idea can never be improved or changed, but forcing revolution can hamper growth when you're inevitably forced to backtrack after you learn the old way maybe had a point.

    My take on the steering wheel is that it could work if the sensitivity of the steering increases continuously with the angle of rotation. The sensitivity could possibly also be made dependent on the speed. So, on the one hand, you could stay in lane at high speeds and, on the other hand, maneuver in small parking lots without ever having to change your grip.That would even make for more security, because people would stick their hands to the wheel.

    I dislike when questionable "accidental" design themes become forcefully brand-defining... The Model S started with the more conventional "fake" front grille. It was oval and dictated the curved shape of the front edge of the bonnet. That shaping was all nice and congrous. Then they decided to ditch the faux grille, but because they didn't want to redesign the bonnet, they just erased the grille and suddenly, the shaping of the bonnet edge stopped making sense. It became ugly, like a peevish grimace. It was one of those facelift decisions made just to have a change, with no regard for the overall design. With the Model 3, which was quite successfully designed without a front grille from the get-go, I expected the next gen of Model 3 was going to follow that. Instead, they just cemented the peeve-face as a trademark. Or (and that is even more probable) this still constitutes just a facelift, as far as the exterior of the car is concerned.

    Anything that is about 2 tons needs to know where it is going, no guessing! But the wheel is a safety design protecting your face when the airbags go off. Besides, it's a bad habit relaxing your arm or wrist on the wheel when you drive, although I think we have all done it. It's going to be strange when 1.99 sec to 60mph is the norm, and all carbon free. Musk may have given us what we need to save this planet just in time. Now if we can get rid of the republicans...

    Today, a Tesla S on autopilot crashed and killed two people in Texas. It took a fire department over 4 hours to put out the fire. The men killed in the crash said just before they left that they wanted to go for a drive and were talking about the vehicle’s driverless features, an official said. Elon Musk, Tesla’s chief executive, earlier on Saturday had promoted a recent safety report from the company, writing on Twitter that “Tesla with Autopilot engaged now approaching 10 times lower chance of accident than average vehicle.”

    i wouldnt set too much stock in the steering wheel that is pictured, pretty much every concept car for the last 20 years has come out with a yoke steering wheel - yet i have never seen it come into any production car. even the original design of the cyber truck had one but was on the list of features that had to change before it would pass road registration.
