Tesla has been planning to release its popular Hardware 4 setup soon. These updates will likely be launched alongside the Tesla Cybertruck electric pickup truck, which is also one of the brand’s most anticipated vehicles. A Twitter user named The Kilowatts revealed that these updated EVs are built at the automaker’s factory in Fremont, California.

The return of the round steering wheel is a major update, as many Tesla owners have criticized the electric automaker’s decision to discontinue traditional steering wheels for the sake of the yoke. Many buyers are not interested in the yoke, citing discomfort while driving.

Teslarati revealed that Tesla’s Hardware 4 setup may find its way into the newly updated Model S and Model X, which will have slots for 11 cameras. Tweets revealing details reveal that there will be no ultrasonic sensors, and that the cars will have a new “Tesla” badge on the rear. Some cameras have also been relocated from their original locations, tweets show.

This certainly shows that Tesla has started producing the updated Model S and Model X at its factory. However, with the automaker being tight-lipped about the development, it’s unclear when it will hit the market. Also, since the Model S and Model X will likely receive the update, other EVs in the automaker’s lineup will soon receive the hardware as well.
