Then if someone didn't like it they could reinstall it upside down and they would have a conventional round, flat-bottomed steering wheel.
I buy a half a pie fairly regularly, and I buy half a dozen donuts fairly regularly too.
So why the heck not.
There have been many who want a driver's instrument cluster on the 3 and Y so much so that we have a couple 3rd party after market accessories with added features. Yet Tesla doesn't yet offer this as an option.
Now who begged Tesla to offer a Yoke in place of the steering wheel before this was announced? I don't recall a single person in all of social media ever suggesting it. My opinion is that those who now say they prefer it over a round wheel would go for anything Tesla tells them they want before they knew they wanted it. These people would probably say they prefer square wheels if Tesla told them to want square wheels.
Notice that Tesla hasn't made any sales pitch describing why the Yoke is superior to a steering wheel.
Maybe Tesla really wants to kill off the MS and MX by offering dumb stuff ( IMO ) that no one has wanted. They can claim that sales fell off a cliff for these cars and are now discontinued.
How many of the 79 Yokesters actually ordered the S with a Yoke?
