do you think Model 3 will have 'fly by wire' steering rather than a mechanical linkage?. The interior shots on the initial launch with no dash hint at such an approach. Advantages would be: Simpler, cheaper Left hand/ right hand production Sophisticated and programmable feel to suit different drivers and situations Better body shell integrity Better integration with autonomous driving systems Better safety in case of impact for driver (although modern design and airbags probably already mitigate this). I heard a comment somewhere that legislation might require a mechanical linkage, but surely a digital approach might be even more reliable and safe. Do you think this is likely on model 3?
