Recently, news emerged that Tesla is recalling some Model S and Model X vehicles due to issues with the airbags that were fitted in yoke and non-yoke steering wheels. With the news, some have expressed their reservations about the yoke’s safety. 

But while the yoke has always been controversial since it was introduced, it is actually a pretty safe steering system. In this blog post, we will discuss the safety and benefits of Tesla's yoke steering wheel.

Safety and Benefits

Tesla produces the safest vehicles on the road. Thus, it should be stated that Tesla has conducted extensive testing to ensure that the yoke steering wheel is safe in all driving conditions. 

The yoke steering wheel also offers a number of benefits over a traditional round steering wheel. These include:

  • Improved visibility: The yoke steering wheel is more compact than a round steering wheel, which improves visibility for the driver. This is perfect for vehicles like the Model 3 and Model Y, which have a flat dashboard.
  • More precise steering: The yoke steering wheel provides more precise steering control than a round steering wheel. Part of this is due to the yoke’s design, which forces drivers to hold the yoke at the 9 and 3 o-clock position. 
  • More modern design: The yoke steering wheel is a more modern and futuristic design than a round steering wheel. This makes it a good fit for Tesla's electric vehicles. 
  • Autopilot and FSD optimization: The yoke steering wheel is designed to be used with Tesla's Autopilot and Full Self-Driving systems, which provide vehicles with the ability to perform driving maneuvers without human input.
