Tesla Model 3 could follow Model S to get a yoke

Will Tesla’s Model 3 electric compact sedan feature an airplane-inspired joystick instead of a traditional steering wheel in 2023? It’s the million-dollar question in the automotive world after Reuters reported that the EV plans extensive updates in its cabin, one of which could be a yoke. While the automaker hasn’t confirmed anything about the upcoming update, introducing the yoke isn’t out of the question since Tesla introduced it in the Model S last year, and it’s garnered a lot of attention. Since the company’s flagship Model S was tied down last year as part of a major makeover effort, the Tesla Model 3 could follow the same path, the report said.

Tesla isn’t one of those automakers that often releases physical upgrades to its vehicles. Instead, the US company relies on over-the-air (OTA) software updates to upgrade the technology and features of its EVs. However, as the report suggests, the upcoming update will be mostly a physical update. The Tesla Model 3 has been around the world for five years and has received several OTA updates to improve the user experience. However, the car’s design remained the same, a change many felt was long overdue.

An upcoming update to Tesla’s Model 3 is said to redesign the electric car’s cabin. The update will focus on reducing complexity inside the Model 3 in an attempt to reduce production costs, which will allow the automaker to lower the car’s sticker price. Apart from the interior, the car’s exterior design may also get some major updates.

The updated Tesla Model 3 will reportedly go into production at the automaker’s Shanghai Gigafactory in the third quarter of 2023. However, the automaker has not yet confirmed the news. The Fremont plant in the U.S. could also be assigned to produce the updated Model 3.
