The RZ 450e’s Steer By Wire Yoke Is What Telsa Needs To Try

From Alex on Autos.

Lexus’s un-steering wheel might seem like a Tesla copy, but in reality it’s the system Tesla should be copying. Rather than simply swapping a yoke-shaped thing in place of the steering wheel, Lexus designed a new steer-by-wire system that radically changes the steering ratio based on the vehicle’s speed. The result is that the yoke never needs to be turned more than about 150 degrees from center so you never have the hand-over-hand weirdness you find in the Model S and Model X. But does that mean it’s a good thing? Or is it an answer in search of a solution?
